THE THEATRE ROYAL PRESENTS A BELL SHAKESPEARE PRODUCTION

The Merchant Of Venice

BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE Director Anne-Louise Sarks
Thu 24 Aug 2017 7:30pm Fri 25 Aug 2017 7:30pm Sat 26 Aug 2017 7:30pm

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.
