Shakespeare’s dark comedy about the body politic and the politics of bodies is a timely critique about piety and the sexual hypocrisy of authority figures. Purity and mercy do win out in the end, but not before audiences are treated to the lighter side of depravity as Angelo, appointed by the Duke of Vienna to clean up the city finds himself lusting after an aspiring nun.
