The Merchant of Venice

Start date: August 24, 2017

End date: August 26, 2017

The Merchant of Venice

 

By WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE   Director ANNE-LOUISE SARKS

THURS 24 to SAT 26 AUGUST at the Theatre Royal

Money makes the world go around. Portia has it. Bassanio wants it. Shylock lends it. Antonio owes the value of it. Love also plays a part. Portia offers it. Bassanio wants it. And Antonio may lose a pound of flesh for it.

This uncompromising and dark production explores the tense relationship and prejudices between those that have, and those that don’t.

Dark in its humour and bawdy in its romantic hijinks, The Merchant Of Venice takes audiences on a journey of love, mercy and justice.
