In Shakespeare’s dark comedy, Measure for Measure, the Duke appoints Angelo to take charge while he’s away. In an abuse of power, Angelo condemns Claudio to death for immoral behavior and his sister, Isabella, begs Angelo for her brother’s life. Angelo agrees to pardon Claudio if Isabella sleeps with him. The play explores themes like power and corruption, sex and sin, religion and society.
