Saturday, November 18, 2023 8:00 PM - Sunday, December 10, 2023 2:00 PM (PST)


Two biting comedies. One with a bloodier bite. Shakespeare, uneasy laughs and epic zombie fights! District Merchants, An Uneasy Comedy examines love, loss, litigation, and predatory lending in surprising ways, wading fearlessly into the endless complexities and contradictions of life in America. Set among the Black and Jewish populations of an imagined time and place that is simultaneously Shakespearean, Reconstruction-era Washington, D.C., and today, DISTRICT MERCHANTS is a remarkable tale of money, merchandise, and mercy brought to the stage by award-winning playwright and director Aaron Posner. Performs in repertory with William Shakespeare's The Land of the Dead!
