“Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall”
Whorehouses and nunneries, betrothals and beheadings – welcome to Vienna! His city overrun by vice and corruption, Duke Vincentio announces that he is to travel abroad on a diplomatic mission and appoints the hardline Angelo in his place, while remaining in the city in disguise to keep a curious and watchful eye.

When Angelo sentences the sister of a novice nun, Isabella, to death for a sexual indiscretion, she approaches Angelo to plead for her sister’s life. What follows is a series of shocking revelations, blackmail, sexual scandal and political intrigue.

Shakespeare’s explosive and prescient drama makes its first appearance at Bard in the Botanics for nearly 15 years in this thrilling new version for just 4 actors in the Kibble Palace glasshouse.

Please note that this performance takes place inside the Kibble Palace Glasshouse and should not be affected by adverse weather conditions. Seating is provided for this performance

Recommended for age 12+. Contains violence and scenes of a sensitive nature that some may find distressing.
