For the Shakespeare challenges; Measure for Measure

Continuing the series in which, somehow, a troupe of Gondorian actors have acquired a copy of 'The Complete Works of Shakespeare'.

“They may be the best players in all Gondor – possibly in all Middle Earth,” Elladan said, “but I do wonder about the mind that comes up with some of the stories they tell.”

“For example,” he warmed to his subject, “I hope, Estel, you would never use such measure for measure as this play extols when you administer justice. I expected it to be about a wager; perhaps something about drinking wine measure for measure in competition.”

“Not then,” Elrohir asked with a smile, “about the measure for measure many ellyth wish to employ when they encounter us both naked?”
