Playwright: William Shakespeare


A postulant learns that her brother is to be executed for getting his fiancée pregnant. She pleads for his life with the moralistic deputy governing for the absent duke, but is forced to yield her virginity unless she can find a way to outsmart him, in William Shakespeare's study of political and sexual hypocrisy.
