As a young Jewish man in seventeenth-century Amsterdam, Baruch de Spinoza excelled as a theological student; but as he encountered free-thinking Protestants, atheists, and radicals in this relatively tolerant city, he began to question his religion and the nature of God. As a result, he was branded a heretic and faced excommunication.

An LA Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Matthew Wolf as Baruch de Spinoza, Edward Asner as Abraham van Valkenburgh, Richard Easton as Saul Levi Mortera, Andrea Gabriel as Clara, Arye Gross as Ben Israel, Amy Pietz as Rebekah, and James Wagner as Simon de Vries. Directed by Rosalind Ayres and recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.
