The city is riddled with corruption. Vice of all kinds runs unchecked. Something must be done. What is needed is the sharp sting of the law to bring people into line. So Duke Vincentio appoints his morally upright deputy Angelo to do the clean-up for him. Only when Angelo is confronted with a young nun who is desperate to help her imprisoned brother, do his own morals prove startlingly slippery. Shakespeare’s inky dark comedy explores law and justice, sex and hypocrisy, in a world that has lost its moral compass.
