THE GENTLE JEWESS OF VENICE
by Martin Coren
Directed by JC Cutler March 2 - 17, 2024
Spawned from what many would say is William Shakespeare's most controversial play, this modern rendering is a dark comedy that takes place where The Merchant of Venice leaves off. In it, banished Shylock returns to see his daughter, Jessica, who is now settled into a happy Christian marriage. Their reunion sets them both on a journey of personal discovery and identity. This exciting new play explores themes of anti-Semitism and faith, and the many facets of Shakespeare's most iconic characters.
