RSCLive: The Merchant of Venice

When: Wed., Aug. 26, 7 p.m. and Sun., Aug. 30, 1 p.m. 2015

Directed by: Polly Findlay (Arden of Faversham 2014) In the melting pot of Venice, trade is God. With its ships plying the globe, the city opens its arms to all, as long as they come prepared to do business and there is profit to be made. With the gold flowing all is well, but when a contract between Bassanio and Shylock is broken, simmering racial tensions boil over. A wronged father, and despised outsider, Shylock looks to exact the ultimate price for a deal sealed in blood.

Price: $21
