Measure for Measure, by William Shakespeare: The central plot concerns an indecent proposal by the acting head of state, Angelo. Strongly attracted to the nun, Isabella, he propositions her in exchange for sparing the life of her brother, who was sentenced to execution because of an outofwedlock pregnancy. Director Beverly Schieman transports the setting to 1920s Paris - a scene of exploding artistic and sexual expression against a historic period of repression and prohibition.
