“The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?”
Claudio has been condemned to die, sentenced under a long-forgotten fornication law by Angelo, the puritanical new governor of Vienna. On the day she was supposed to take her vows as a cloistered nun, Claudio’s sister Isabella must instead plead for her brother’s life. Angelo listens, and is willing to spare Claudio, but at an unthinkable price. It’s not exactly her prayers he’s after.
William Shakespeare’s dark satire of lust, power and corruption comes to Strait Street’s favourite abandoned brothel in a fresh take by the team behind the beloved Shakespeare at the Pub trilogy, with six actors in multiple roles, a bit of music, a dash of burlesque, and continued easy access to booze, because honestly we never learn.
