“…a pound of flesh…nearest his heart…so says the bond…”
The Merchant of Venice is a story with themes Shakespeare couldn’t resist: an unfathomable sadness in a man’s heart, the mysterious terrors of the ocean, hate crime and religious intolerance, money and our willingness to gamble with our lives.
Together with some of Shakespeare’s most extraordinary characters, including the Jewish moneylender Shylock, this comedy delivers so much for your students to discover.
Presented by award-winning theatre company Sport For Jove, The Merchant of Venice is the intriguing tale of the difference between mercy and justice.
