The Merchant of Venice is a funny play that deals with serious issues. Wealthy Antonio borrows money from Shylock, and is so confident about paying it back that he enters into a ridiculous agreement: that he will give Shylock a pound of his flesh should he default. Then events conspire against him so that he cannot repay the loan. Bassanio risks everything in the hope of winning the hand of Portia in marriage.
Admittedly he succeeds - but when she gives him a ring to keep, and he is compelled to give it away, what future for their domestic bliss? Shakespeare’s great courtroom drama is by turns thrilling, funny, romantic and unsettling. International award-winning Illyria promise a production to keep you on the edge of your seat!
Doors open at 6pm.
