The Merchant of Venice

Directed by Nigel Shawn Williams • June 22 - September 16 • Howard Family Stage in the Douglas Campbell Theatre

A deeply fascinating study in contrasts, Shakespeare's timeless drama, set this season in modern-day Venice, exposes the consequences of how we treat outsiders in our midst. Portia and Bassanio discover true love but the merchant Antonio and the moneylender Shylock are driven by prejudice and the craving for revenge, as they move ever closer to a devastating judgement day.
