The Gentle Jewess of Venice


World Premiere


In William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, Shylock is forced to renounce his Judaism and is estranged from his beloved daughter. In this new play, it's now a year later, and Jessica, married and a Christian woman living in a world of privilege, allows her father back into her life and together they begin a journey of rediscovery. 
"Having previously played Shylock at the Guthrie Theater,

I look forward to revisiting Shakespeare's world, reuniting with my daughter, and rediscovering our banished Jewish identity."
