Vienna has fallen into disarray, decadence and debauchery after decades of corrupt rule, with justice turning a blind eye. A chaotic city, full of hot heads and hot beds, driven by an alluring beat. The Duke has fled, appointing the cool headed, cold hearted Angelo to make things right. When Angelo sentences Claudio to death for breaking the law on his watch, Claudio’s virtuous sister Isabella is dragged from the nunnery to help, but Angelo’s autocracy begins to waver in the face of the enigmatic Isabella.
Purity has never looked so good.
