WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Vienna is a city of lapsed laws, of back-room deals, and flexible moralities. When the Duke mysteriously disappears from the city, Angelo, the substitute for the absent Duke, promises to bring back the rule of law and the Word of God. How will the citizens react to the changes in government? Will Angelo prove to be a just tyrant or a depraved hypocrite? And who is this meddlesome friar wandering around everywhere?
