Summary

Jerusalem, 1192. Muslims, Christians and Jews live side by side thanks to a fragile truce that could collapse at any moment. As the tension mounts a question arises from the ruling Sultan: “which religion is the one most beloved by God?” Nathan, a pious Jewish merchant, is charged with answering this question to help secure the continued safety of his people.

Next to Shylock, Nathan the Wise is perhaps the greatest Jewish character in all of Western dramatic literature. Academy Award-winning actor F. Murray Abraham returns to CSC after his critically-acclaimed portrayal of Galileo, adding Nathan to his illustrious gallery of revelatory portrayals.
