Merchant of Venice


Merchant of Venice

A deal gone very wrong.

“If you prick us, do we not bleed? . . .  If you poison us, do we not die?           And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?

In Shakespeare’s uncompromising and problematic play, the contempt hurled at the ‘other’, festers and grows. In a world where racial prejudices, mistrust, and the engrained belief systems of two opposing traditions come to a boiling point.  Revenge is the currency used to right a wrong. Mercy is in short supply.

dlr Mill Theatre bring an exciting, contemporary, and engaging abridged 90-minute production to our stage. A talented ensemble cast of 10 actors, breathe new life into the text for both students and lovers of Shakespeare alike.
