Join the Worcester Repertory Company in the stunning surroundings of Worcester Cathedral for one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragic comedies, The Merchant of Venice; a tale of love, greed, faith and mistaken identities, where great friendship ultimately conquers all.
Follow noble Venetian, Bassanio, on his quest to win the hand of wise and wealthy heiress Portia. Desperately in need of money to court Portia, Bassanio turns to his friend Antonio, a wealthy merchant of Venice. Agreeing, but unable to make the loan himself, Antonio suggests that Bassanio secure the loan from one of the city’s moneylenders and name Antonio as the loan’s guarantor – a suggestion that leads the pair to Shylock, the Jewish money-lender with a long-standing grudge against Antonio and his anti-Semitic tendencies. Intent on revenge, Shylock imposes a fearsome condition on the loan - timely payment or a pound of Antonio’s flesh. The play unravels to its dramatic end as Antonio defaults on his loan and Shylock attempts to enforce his gruesome penalty.
