John and Angeline Oremus Theater
Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Warm-hearted, irreverent, zany and brilliantly imaginative, Crimes of the Heart teems with humanity and humor as it examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions.
Measure for Measure

An intriguing, challenging, and very dark comedy, Measure for Measure delves into a society’s often hypocritical attitudes toward love, personal fidelity, religion, politics, and marriage. Come celebrate the 11th anniversary of Moraine Valley’s “Shakespeare Under the Stars.” Bring your picnic dinner and beach chairs to the Gateway and experience our production of one of Shakespeare's lesser-known but most intriguing plays.
