An unflinching new production of The Merchant of Venice is told by candlelight in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
In a world where money turns the wheels, men call the shots, and your religion or race can open or close doors, some win and some lose.
If Jewish Shylock plays by the rules, will he win?
If his daughter Jessica joins the rule-makers, can she lose?
Unless the powerful few simply change the game to suit themselves.
Director Abigail Graham (MUM, Soho) and the company reclaim Shakespeare’s disturbing tale. Looking at the story in a contemporary context, the production asks us to confront and question our own prejudices in the here and now.
This production contains racism, including antisemitism and anti-black racism. It also includes strong language, scenes of a sexual nature, flash photography and loud noises.
Galleries (Seating) £59 – £15
