Measure For Measure is noteworthy for its political and social implications and its compelling characters: a duke posing as a monk, a would-be nun ordered to sacrifice her chastity to save  her brother's life, a self-righteous coutier, and a host of colourful supporting characters.
 
This engrossing drama is set in 16th century Vienna. Duke Vincentio attempts to enforce the city's long-ignored morality laws, which results in a death sentence for Claudio, a young man accused of seducing and impregnating his fiancee, Julietta. His sister Isabella attempts to get a pardon for him, but refuses when she is asked to exchange her virtue for her brother's life.
