Shakespeare at the Rock proudly presents: The Merchant of Venice
Money: Portia has it. Bassanio wants it. Shylock lends it. Antonio owes it. And it will cost him dearly. Dark in its humour and bawdy in its romantic hijinks, The Merchant Of Venice takes audiences on a journey of love, mercy and (in)justice. And for the second consecutive year, celebrated director Trevor Copp (Artistic Director, Tottering Biped Theatre) and the Shakespeare at the Rock ensemble create a strikingly physical, playfully contemporary, abridged re-imagining of one of William Shakespeare’s classics.
This production will once again feature a group of outstanding, talented actors from our region, creating an evening of intelligent, physically daring, and wholly accessible Shakespeare. We are very fortunate to be able to present this follow up to our inaugural Shakespeare at the Rock in 2016 and look forward to developing this wonderful event for years to come.
