The Merchant of Venice

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Robert Cuccioli
Previews begin May 17

"The quality of mercy is not strained,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath..."

A money-obsessed, patriarchal, dysfunctional society where wealth bestows power; one in which women cannot determine their own fate, and one marked by religious and racial prejudice. Sound familiar? Shakespeare's dark comedy could not be more resonant for our time. A play that offers no true villains or heroes, his Venice presents a culture as complex and troubling as our own, where the situations and questions posed ask us to examine the "quality of mercy" in myriad ways.
