SPECIAL WORKSHOP PRODUCTION
“The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?”
When Angelo is abruptly appointed to rule over a chaotic and debauched city, he restores order with repressive laws and an iron fist over licentiousness. The object of his own twisted desire is a young nun, whom he puts in an unthinkable position. "To whom shall I complain?" is all that young Isabella can utter when she finds herself the target of his abuse of power. Justice can never come soon enough.
Generously sponsored by Dr. Donald and Phoebe L. Giddon.
