At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk's precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall in the wrong hands.

Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare
Measure for Measure, Shakespeare’s last and most modern comedy seems written for the “#me too” era. Vienna is torn by the forces of creeping totalitarianism on one hand and bawdy anarchy on the other with Lucio the rake, Pompey the pimp, and Mistress Overdone the prostitute tweaking the nose of authority. The Duke, suspecting that his right-hand man Angelo is secretly a member of a fascist puritanical group, goes into hiding as Friar Lodowick while leaving Angelo in charge to test him. Angelo immediately transforms Vienna into a theocracy imposing strict biblical laws. Claudio and his pregnant fiancée Juliet are imprisoned for fornication before marriage with Claudio receiving a death sentence. Isabel, a nun and Claudio’s sister, pleads to Angelo for Claudio’s life. Angelo demands that the celibate Isabel have sex with him in exchange for pardoning her brother. Against a fascist patriarchy can one woman win? Can the disguised Duke restore order? Will Claudio and Juliet be saved? Find out on April 6th just in time for Shakespeare’s 453rd birthday.
