Four political agitators report the murder of a young comrade to their Party leaders and in order to explain themselves they stage a play. In The Measures Taken, Brecht leads us to question the nature of violence, solidarity, and sacrifice, as we follow the four agitators on their mission to spread propaganda, incite world revolution, and overthrow the evils of a capitalist society.
