Everything That Never Happened

SEP 27–NOV 04

Written by Sarah B. Mantell
Directed by Jessica Kubzansky

The Merchant of Venice missed the point. But whether or not you know Shakespeare or Shylock, this provocative new work plays between the gaps in the classic tale to expose the realities of Jewish history. Sarah Mantell’s time-bending story, rich with humor and heartbreak, bridges the 16th century with today and beyond. What do we lose or gain by leaving our own culture? And what sacrifices does love demand of fathers and daughters, lovers and friends? Everything That Never Happened is a play about disguise, assimilation, pomegranates, and everything Shakespeare left out.
