Description
Take a dip below the Deck with one of Shakespeare’s most problematic plays of virtue and vice - justice and mercy. With his city beset with brothels and loose morality, the Duke of Vienna must seek some divine intervention. In doing so, he hands over power to Lord Angelo, who enforces long-dormant codes of chastity with a zealous fervor. When a pious young nun pleads for the life of her condemned brother, Angelo’s response is surprisingly sensual, even to him revealing a web of desire, deception, and hypocrisy that infects every corner of society.
