"When the Duke of Vienna takes a leave of absence and hands his power over the iron-fisted Angelo, a new regime begins, which brings the very definitions of vice and virtue into question. MEASURE FOR MEASURE centers on the terrible choice asked of Isabella, a novice nun, by the hypocritical Angelo as he tries to cleanse the city of its impurities. Isabella must decide whether to sacrifice her virginity to Angelo to save her brother Claudio's life, or to remain virtuous. The Duke, who returns incognito to Vienna, must also decide how to resume governance of an unruly state." (Shakespeare Theatre Company, 2012 Regional Theater Tony Award recipient)
