Synopsis of “The Merchant of Venice”
One pound of flesh is the price demanded for a loan gone unrepaid. In a reimagined setting of the 1930s, the deal is struck by Jewish moneylender Shylock, who is too jaded for negotiation. The stunning, noble Portia fights back against his unfair terms, and the resulting verdict leaves one questioning whether justice is necessarily just.
This is one of Shakespeare’s best-known plays, with some of his most adored and vilified characters, telling a complex tale of love, deception and consequence. Appropriate for all ages.
