"To whom should I complain? Did I tell this, who would believe me?" Over 400 years before the #MeToo movement, Shakespeare wrote about similar abuse of power. Set in medieval Vienna, novice nun Isabella goes to Judge Angelo to plead for a pardon to save her brother's life, only to be met with an indecent proposal. This thought-provoking play poses questions of power and justice still relevant today.
