Blackbird Theatre, in co-operation with Temple Sholom, and through the assistance of the Seedlings Foundation, presents the reading of the classic play, Nathan the Wise, that speaks directly to the urgent need for racial and religious tolerance.
In a witty and free flowing translation by Edward Kemp, Lessing’s 18th century masterpiece offers a healing tale for all humankind. Never allowed a performance during Lessing’s lifetime, and later banned by the Nazis, Nathan the Wise now seems a very modern work, countering prejudice with honour, compassion and reason.
The character Nathan will be played by one of Vancouver’s most popular and gifted actors, Jay Brazeau.
