The Virtuous Fall of the Girls from Our Lady of Sorrows, inspired by Shakespeare’s famous problem play, is a hilarious exploration of teenage revolution in the face of petty authoritarianism. Set in a Catholic girls’ school, Gina Femia's play recounts the ripple effects caused by one student's decision to produce M4M2, a controversial sequel to Measure for Measure.
SWP’s fresh take on Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure tells the story of women coming together to uncover a history of sexual harassment buried within the Justice System. This production explores sisterhood through a problematic classic and uncovers the zany humor at its core.
