Join Bob Smith on a journey through all of Shakespeare!
“O beware, my lord of jealousy:
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.”
As with the Winter’s Tale, jealousy’s the theme. But this time there’s a spectacular love story. An aging black military hero who has “never thought to marry,” whose life’s a soldier’s career, meets the gorgeous daughter of a cantankerous old senator. The progressive girl makes a play for the exotic hero and he falls hard. They both do.
Knowing the perils of a skeptical world the interracial couple elopes. The enraged racist dad crashes the wedding reception with the local police. The betrayal’s been set up by the general’s ensign who’s been plotting to bring down the war hero. And that’s where this wonder of a play starts!
It’s obvious why this extraordinary text is on everyone’s top five list of the Bard’s greatest achievements. The language is great, the characterizations deep, the plot chilling. No play’s more compelling than our 31st play at Nights with Shakespeare. We think you will love it. To capture the stunning world of Renaissance Venice we’ll illustrate with Titian.
