The Merchant Of Venice

Tuesday, 22 August 2017

Writer: William Shakespeare
Director: Anne-Louise Sarks

All that glisters is not gold;
Often have you heard that told.
Act 2 Scene 7

 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.

This masterfully envisioned production tackles the prejudices and preconceived notions of one of Shakespeare’s most challenging plays.
