Nathan the Wise  

Nathan the Wise $21.81 ex GST
$23.99 inc GST

Edward Kemp’s acclaimed version of Lessing’s 18th-century masterpiece, a passionate plea for religious tolerance.

Jerusalem, 1192. An uneasy stalemate exists between the Muslim forces of Saladin and the western Crusaders. Caught in the middle are the Jews. All sides respect Nathan for his wisdom and his wealth. But in a war-zone, no one is secure.

'This is a play whose time has come again... brilliantly lucid translation... eminently worth seeing... a seminal piece of world drama written in 1779 and banned by the Nazis in 1933, its theme speaks urgently and forcefully to us today.'  Guardian
