Freedom, Justice, Difference: The Merchant of Venice Now

Karin Coonrod, the Founding Director of Compagnia de’ Colombari, will join Nathaniel Deutsch and Sean Keilen for a public discussion of her path-breaking production of The Merchant of Venice in the Venice Ghetto (2016). Join us to discover why Shakespeare’s play about Jews and Christians in Renaissance Italy is a key text for deciding how to be free and just in the global society we inhabit now. With introductory remarks by Mike Ryan (Santa Cruz Shakespeare) and Murray Baumgarten.
