Everything That Never Happened
About Everything That Never Happened
"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, "Everything That Never Happened," is rich with humor and heartbreak, bridging 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?
