Merchant of Venice is one of Shakespeare’s most controversial plays – we are not shying away from controversy this season!! Theater gives us space to grapple with the issues that we are hearing and absorbing in the “real world.”
And the issues explored in Merchant of Venice feel exceptionally current. What happens when you stereotype people based on their cultural or religious identity? Is it ever OK? If you bully a bully, does that excuse your behavior? It’s easy to make assumptions about the events of this play, but when you dig deeper, the answers are never as simple as they might seem, at first glance.
