Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare

In a city besieged with crime and pay-to-play politics, a corrupt deputy and a devout nun enter into a perverse bargain. Will modest Isabella surrender her chastity to save her brother from the sex crime he's accused of? Or will she preserve her maidenhead and condemn her brother to death? In Shakespeare's blackest comedy, Measure for Measure is a scathing indictment of political and religious hypocrisy as well as a darkly poetic quest to discover the true nature of justice.
