The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?
Vienna is corrupt. The Duke, who let the city fall to vice, hands control to his Deputy, a hard line, puritan puppet master. The Deputy uses ancient laws to sentence citizens to death for sexual misconduct and control their every move. But when a religious Novice pleads for mercy, their heady encounter leaves the Deputy guilty of the very crime that the law condemns.
Discarded Nut Youth Theatre’s production explores the themes of power and corruption in both a classic and contemporary style highlighting how Shakespeare’s play of power and corruption is as relevant today as it was in 1604.
