In a time that could be now and a place that could be here, the world is harshly divided along gender lines. When a new deputy begins enforcing some of society’s strictest laws, a woman must plead to save her brother from execution. Through Shakespeare's poetic language, Willis-Woodward's new adaptation, and Siddiqui's original compositions, moral authority, “law” and “order,” and the extensive impact of patriarchy are unearthed in this ensemble-driven retelling of the 17th century classic "comedy.”
