Experience The Merchant of Venice
In modern Venice, where austerity prevails for all but those at the top, Portia a wealthy heiress is looking for a suitor. Bassanio borrows money from Antonio to finance his attempt to win her over. Antonio in turn, takes a loan out from the moneylender Shylock.
When the contract is broken, racial tensions boil over in electrifying courtroom scenes, where Shakespeare’s most unforgettable outcast demands his pound of flesh.
