Qualities of “Mercy?”

In 2020, the “Get Thee to the Funnery” Shakespeare camp took on the controversial Shakespeare play, “Merchant of Venice” and used it to confront prejudice and hate speech, deal with the pandemic lockdown, and examine the Black Lives Matter movement. Young actors in Vermont and Mumbai, India collaborated on the project that was filmed on Zoom and their iPhones. The piece was edited by Funnery founder Peter Gould and Burlington videographer Isaiah Palmeri.

On Thursday, January 28 at 7:00 pm join Gould, campers Gouri Bhuyan and Audrey Grant, and longtime Funnery participant and Vermont Humanities Literacy Programs Officer Jonny Flood as they host a roundtable discussion about the film on Zoom. Audience participation at this event is welcome and encouraged! Register at: https://www.vermonthumanities.org/event/qualities-of-mercy/
