About

In the melting pot of Venice, trade is God. With its ships plying the globe, the city opens its arms to all – as long as they come prepared to do business and there is profit to be made.

When the gold is flowing, all is well – but when a contract between Bassanio and Shylock is broken, simmering racial tensions boil over.

A wronged father, and despised outsider, Shylock looks to exact the ultimate price for a deal sealed in blood.

‘The Palestinian actor Makram J Khoury is a touching Shylock.’
– The Guardian

‘…this haunting production crackles with tension... There is evidence of crisp, fresh thinking in every scene of this excellent production.’
– The Evening Standard
