Shakespeare Troupe presents The Moneylender of Venice by Peter Filichia

December 13, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Peter Filichia’s fresh look at William Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice turns the problematic character of Shylock into a portrait of redemption, as the Moneylender struggles against prejudice in Venice, Italy to find his faith in forgiveness and familial love. The staged reading features members of the Shakespeare Troupe of South Florida with Avi Hoffman in the title role. The talkback explores the circumstances under which Shakespeare wrote such a harsh treatment of Jews and Christians and proposes some theories about the playwright’s identity. A staged reading directed by Jeremy Quinn.
