The Merchant of Venice, Annotated

coming in 2023

What can a play from sixteenth century England tell us about how antisemitism and other prejudicial beliefs operate in our world today? What perceived truths does a play reveal about the society in which it was created, and what ideas within that society does it reinforce?


In our next project, we take a new look at William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, weaving in our unique blend of deep historical investigation and heightened theatricality to create a new work from the core of the classic play. We’ll investigate questions related to the nature of "truth" as it exists both in the world and on the stage – as well as issues of identity, marginalization, assimilation, and power throughout history and in our modern world.
