William Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice"

Saturday, September 14, 2019

We invite you to experience William Shakespeare’s most controversial, most problematic and, perhaps, most modern play: The Merchant of Venice. Whatever you think you already know about Merchant, the play will challenge your assumptions and defy your expectations. The Merchant of Venice, in the words of Shakespeare scholar James Shapiro, “scrapes against a bedrock of beliefs about the racial, national, sexual and religious difference of others. I can think of no other literary work that does so as unrelentingly and honestly.”
