In this comedy, Shakespeare weaves together two ancient folk myths, one involving a vengeful, greedy Jewish creditor trying to exact a pound of flesh from a Christian over an unpaid debt, the other involving a marriage suitor’s choice among three chests to win the hand of his beloved. How does one harmonize the Elizabethan anti-Semitic portrayal of Shylock with the fairy-tale romance of Portia and Bassanio? And then make this experience relevant and comedic to a contemporary audience? Join us as we celebrate the final production in our exploration of politically-themed work.
