Measure for Measure is a play written by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1603 or 1604. Originally published in the First Folio of 1623, where it was listed as a comedy, the... More > play's first recorded performance occurred in 1604. The play's main themes include justice, "mortality and mercy in Vienna," and the dichotomy between corruption and purity: "some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall." Mercy and virtue prevail, as the play does not end tragically, with virtues such as compassion and forgiveness being exercised at the end of the production. While the play focuses on justice overall, the final scene illustrates that Shakespeare intended for moral justice to temper strict civil justice: a number of the characters receive understanding and leniency, instead of the harsh punishment to which they, according to the law, could have been sentenced.< Less

More > way, where, within his power, justice could be meted out - where the law would not. He convinced five like-minded friends, that something had to be done to restore at least some measure of fairness and integrity into British society. Thus was born the JJ Club. They embarked upon a crusade – one, which pitted them against criminals extremely well versed in plying their nefarious activities. From the start, the JJs encountered street gangs, drunken drivers who had caused death, rapists, money launderers, people traffickers, pimps, prostitutes, drug barons and killers. It became a ‘David and Goliath’ contest – amateurs against vicious professionals, but it was one that all six men were determined to compete in. No outcome could be guaranteed – no member was safe – no law could protect them.< Less
