The Merchant of Venice

By William Shakespeare

Directed by James Bohnen

One of the Bard's great comedies, made all the more thrilling for its edginess. It's finely balanced between an extravagantly rich, fairytale world and the greedy, mean streets of commercial Venice. To woo the wealthy maiden Portia, a young Venetian borrows from his friend, who takes out a loan with the Jewish moneylender Shylock. When he's unable to repay, we're headed for court and a chilling confrontation. A dazzling play of deeply poetic language. Straight from the heart. With a head full of resonating issues worth further thinking about.
