When a young woman is offered the choice ofsaving a man's life at the price of her own chastity, what should she do?

Angelos First act is to imprison Claudio, a young nobleman who has gotten his betrothed, Juliet, with child. Under the old laws, this is punishable by death.

Disguised as a friar, the duke returns to manipulate the players and deliver justice in one or Shakespeare's darkest plays concerned with the nature of justice and morality.
