About Nathan the Wise

Written by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing Adapted by Michael Bloom Directed by Adam Immerwahr Produced in Association with Folger Theatre

AN 18TH-CENTURY SHAKESPEAREAN FABLE

Starring Mitchell Hébert, Emily Whitworth, Drew Kopas, Jeff Keogh, and Sarah Corey

In 12th century Jerusalem, Jews, Christians, and Muslims live side by side in peace—or so they hope. As tensions rise, the ruling sultan asks: “Which religion is the one most beloved by G-d?” Lives, and the future of Jerusalem itself, are on the line as the brilliant Jewish merchant Nathan seeks to answer the question. This funny and timely 18th-century Shakespearean play is chock full of mistaken identities, foiled romances, and relationships across cultural and religious divides. Michael Bloom’s smart new adaptation celebrates the common humanity that unites us all.
