Measure for Measure

by William Shakespeare

Angelo, the new Deputy in Vienna invokes an ancient law demanding the death penalty for unmarried men who sleep with their girlfriends. Claudio is the first. His sister, Isabella, a young nun who has made a vow of chastity, begs Angelo for mercy. Attracted to this virtuous young girl Angelo offers her a terrible bargain: to sleep with him in return for her brother's life. Meanwhile in the background, the real Duke is watching.
