ON TOUR

The Merchant of Venice (Annotated), or In Sooth I Know Not Why I Am So Sad) by Aaron Henne

December 5th, 2023, Irvine, CA
January 25th, 2024, Baltimore, MD
February 11th, 2024, Seattle, WA

William Shakespeare likely wrote The Merchant of Venice between 1596 and 1598, only a few years after plague had temporarily closed London's theaters. This was a period of great uncertainty in English society, with ongoing conflicts taking their toll, concerns about the government's stability under an aging leader, and significant economic stresses. The anxieties associated with these societal pressures can perhaps be seen in Merchant in its portrayal of Shylock, the Jewish moneylender.

Bringing together elements of Merchant with Elizabethan history and news from 2020 to the present, The Merchant of Venice (Annotated), or In Sooth I Know Not Why I Am So Sad takes a kaleidoscopic view of the ways in which members of a society displace their fears on the "other" during times of upheaval.

Whats wrong with CORRECT dates

 Theatre Ariel presents: What's Wrong with this Picture by Donald Margulies

multiple locations in Philadelphia

March 9th-17th, 2024

Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 7 pm then 2 pm

 

 The dead are meant to stay buried – aren’t they? Last week, Mort lost his wife to a terrible moo shoo pork tragedy. Now, though he’s technically done sitting shiva, he ignores the cries to “move on” from his exasperated family, won’t let anyone touch the unpacked furniture his wife ordered before her passing, and tries to relive the past through his son. Then, the incredible happens and sorrow turns to joy. But this seeming miracle brings with it a whole host of problems. Margulies, playwright of such hits as Collected Stories and Loman Family Picnic, navigates his characters through these conflicts in delightfully unexpected ways, delivering a dark comedy about death that is nonetheless filled with life.
