Merchant of Venice - Invictus Theatre Company.jpg

The importance of storytelling is to bear witness to the events of the past.

Invictus Theatre Company's production of The Merchant of Venice is set in 1938 Italy during the period of racial laws where Italian Jews were disenfranchised and discriminated against during the rise of European Fascism. This concept sheds new light on a classic story of revenge, justice, love, and mercy.

Q and A with Our Late Company Member, Reginald Vaughn

Q and A with Our Late Company Member, Reginald Vaughn

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of company member Reginald Vaughn. He was a brave actor, a kind person, and our dear friend. We will not forget his smile, his gentle humor, or his warm presence. As we reflect on our time with him, we would like to share some of his last words to us recorded as a Q and A used to introduce audiences to our company.

Our pictures were taken along with hundreds of other Edgewater residents and all of the pictures will be put together to create a mural that will hang outside of Moody's Pub so all who pass remember that we all live here, we all support one another, and art can, in fact, make a difference.
