The Merchant of Venice


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Set in the city banking sector during the current debt crisis the Rose will open the 2012 season with a modern dress production of William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. Love is caught up in a whirlwind of market forces in this dark comedy set in the world of high finance. The quality of mercy is not strained but put to the test when beloved Antonio loses his fortune and Shylock demands his bond. A pound of flesh will be the price to pay the debt between these hated rivals. Think of Oliver Stone’s Wall Street with slick suits and razor sharp dialogue.
