By William Shakespeare
Shakespeare’s remarkable exploration of love and justice returns to the nation’s capital, stoking the debate on what is right, what is fair, and what is lawful—and who gets to decide. Bassanio needs funds to woo Portia, a quick-witted heiress bound by her father’s will. His friend Antonio secures a loan from Shylock, who stipulates a pound of flesh as collateral. When Antonio cannot pay, Shylock demands his price. As our country struggles with bigotry and hate, Shakespeare’s irresistible heroine and his most enigmatic antihero compel us to examine our own prejudices and the true nature of mercy.
