...for truth is truth
To the end of reckoning.
— Isabella, Act V, Scene 1

Vienna is in turmoil after two decades of societal upheaval, and Duke Vincentio has abruptly decided to flee the city, leaving his faithful deputy, Angelo, in charge. Determined to put an end to moral corruption in Vienna, Angelo decides to strictly enforce even the most Puritan laws on the books. When a young man named Claudio is sentenced to death for "fornication," his sister Isabella pleads to Angelo for Claudio’s life. In this co-production between Company of Fools and Barefoot Shakespeare Company, we explore how our actions are guided by our deepest fears and foibles and ask our audience:
What happens to a society when women’s voices are silenced?
