An image promoting  THE SHYLOCK AND THE SHAKESPEAREANS by Edward Einhorn

THE SHYLOCK AND THE SHAKESPEAREANS is a darkly humorous retelling of The Merchant of Venice, written and directed by Edward Einhorn.

In ancient Venice, of sorts, a mob of white supremacists calling themselves the Shakespeareans has taken over public discourse. Jacob, a Jewish diamond merchant, finds himself entangled with Antonio, a member of the Shakespeareans. Jacob’s daughter Jessica has fallen in love with the son of Asian immigrants. And in Belmont, a young heiress named Portia subjects her suitors to a strange, nonsensical game. When Antonio’s business encounters hardship, he reneges on a debt with Jacob then spreads the rumor Jacob wants him dead. A trial in a kangaroo court follows.
