About The Play

The city is plagued by vice, and the Duke has departed on a secret mission, entrusting his minister, Angelo, to govern and maintain order. Angelo takes his role too seriously, and when Claudio is apprehended, Lucio enlists Sister Isabella’s help. However, Isabella is unwilling to meet Angelo’s unreasonable demands for Claudio’s freedom. To resolve the situation and expose Angelo’s double standards, the Duke devises a clever plan.
