Shakespeare wrote this play centrered around the dichotomy between corruption and purity in the early 1600s, yet it remains astonishingly resonant today.

Vienna is teeming with brothels and loose morality, but the Duke doesn't want to use his authority to clean up the city. He departs, dressed as a friar, leaving his deputy, Angelo, in charge. Angelo is at first reluctant, but he soon starts to make changes.
