Marc in Venice

by Mark Erson

directed by Mark Erson

MARC IN VENICE is a theatrical triptych telling the interwoven stories of three men named Marc, separated by time, in Venice, Italy. In the first century (AD), the gospel-writer Marcus is running from the persecutions being waged against Christians, only to be shipwrecked in the swamp where the future city will be built. In the 13th century, Marco Polo returns to Venice with plenty to tell after nearly threedecades of adventure, but the local cardinal seeks to suppress the worldly-wise explorer, whose stories are seen as a threat to the authority and power of the Church. In the 21st century, an American college graduate, Marc, meets restaurateur Angelo on vacation, and the Venetian's attention challenges Marc to face the truth about himself. Faith and doubt, adventure and risk, love and courage come into play as a saint wrestles with his call, a great traveler strives to tell his story, and a young man finds himself, all in the romantic city of Venice.
