Measure for Measure Characters

Mistress Overdone is a madam. When her brothel is closed down by Angelo’s order, she quickly opens another one elsewhere. 

She feels very hard-done by, as a great number of men are ill, in the army, or too poor to be able to afford to use her services even before it becomes dangerous to do so. She continues to ply her trade even after three warnings, and is arrested for it.
