The Merchant of Venice

Author(s): William Shakespeare

The Merchant of Venice

In a society that exploits minorities to keep the majority in power, identity is everything.

When ostracised Jewish moneylender Shylock chases a debt he is rightfully owed, it exposes the fault lines of a culture built on religious and moral hypocrisy.

The Merchant of Venice is Shakespeare’s complex exploration of prejudice, patriarchy and capitalism. Director Abigail Graham brings together the personal and political in this re-imagining of Shylock’s play.
