Contemporary re-working of William Shakespeare's problem play set in the modern day British army. The story follows Isabel, a nun, who pleads for her brother's life after he is sentenced to death under martial law. Angelo, a strict and frustrated young officer immediately sets about making his presence felt. He sentences for immediate execution for his violation of a senior female officer, and his part in flag burning drunken stunt. This provokes a series of protests from officers and friends alike, which all fall on Angelo's deaf ears, until word is sent for Claudio's sister to appeal on his behalf. Meanwhile the Duke waits, watches and manipulates. Power and sex still dominate the narrative, as all prepare to justify their own morality.
