The No Name Collective Presents MEASURE FOR MEASURE
The No Name Collective kicks off it's 2020 season with William Shakespeare's Measure for Measure. Directed by Michael Fleischer, this production opens for a 2 week run at The PIT Loft at The Peoples Improv Theater.

Only Isabella, a nun-in-training can stop him. But at what price? A story of power: those who abuse it, and those who suffer from it.
