Folger Theatre: Nathan the Wise

March 16 - April 10

$30 – $85

FOLGER THEATRE

Nathan the Wise
March 16-April 10, 2022
Theater J

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 an answer.

This funny and timely 18th-century Shakespeare-styled 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.
