Shakespeare’s darkest comedy tackles the twin evils of power and corruption with outrageous humor, giving hope to the hopeless and courage to the powerless.
His city caught in a moral free-fall, the Duke of Vienna hands over power to Lord Angelo, who enforces long-dormant codes of chastity with zealous fervor. When a pious young nun pleads for the life of her condemned brother, Angelo’s response is surprisingly sensual—revealing a web of desire, deception and hypocrisy that infects every corner of society.
