The Merchant of Venice (Preview Performance)

In Venice, a Jewish businesswoman tries to join a clique of power-brokers, a wealthy merchant tries to buy a young man’s love and an heiress attempts to escape her dead father’s will.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Adam L. Sussman

A businesswoman, hated for being Jewish, tries to break into the clique of rich men who run Venice. A wealthy merchant seeks to buy the love of a young man. A sheltered heiress attempts to escape her dead father’s will. One of Shakespeare’s most controversial and misunderstood plays, this production of The Merchant of Venice tackles, head-on, the topics of anti-Semitism, misogyny and homophobia in society.
