Join us in Venice, 1938. Il Duce rules with an iron fist, and within fascist Italy, Jews are considered aliens in their own homeland. To woo the wealthy heiress Portia, Bassanio must borrow money from his friend Antonio - who must, in turn, borrow money from the Jewish moneylender Shylock, who has problems of her own. Come see the unfolding of one of Shakespeare's most intriguing comedies.
