Merchant of Venice

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Claudia Bach

All that glisters is not gold. So warns Shakespeare that all may not be as we think in one of his most controversial yet increasingly relevant plays. In a mythically splendorous city full of wealth and celebration, injustice and cruelty lurk beneath the surface. One Jewish man, tired of his repeated abuses and losses, is presented with an opportunity to make Venice confront its own hate and hypocrisy. What follows is a dark series of events that challenges our understanding of right and wrong and forces us to examine what we might see if we could look past the glister and the gold.
