District Merchants

A Variation on Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice. Love and litigation, deep passions, and predatory lending are taken to a new level in this uneasy comedy, which wades fearlessly into the endless complexities and contradictions of life in America. Set among the Black and Jewish populations of an imagined time and place—simultaneously Shakespearean, post-Civil War Washington, DC, and today, a remarkable tale of money, merchandise, and mercy. It explores race, religion, power and money in America that feels all too contemporary. Talkbacks scheduled after the 1/31 and 2/7 performance facilitated by Jennifer Wintzer, .Associate Artistic Director, Shakespeare Festival St. Louis

Directed by Jacqueline Thompson; Cast: Gary Wayne Barker, J Samuel Davis, Courtney Bailey Parker, Alicen Moser, Erika Flowers, Karl Hawkins.
