Event Short Description

Written 400 years ago and still relevant today – not least religious prejudice

Event Information

Wick Theatre Company presents The Merchant of Venice

The tale of the merchant who enters into a contract with the Jewish banker Shylock and then can’t pay is one of Shakespeare’s most famous tales. But there are strangely current themes within the play: the use of the law, the use and abuse of power and who has it, using an abusing public opinion for their own sakes.

This very special Wick Theatre Company version sees the tale brought completely up to date, as the ideas are already current, not least are the themes of religious prejudice and the fundamental sense of right and wrong.

An intriguing blend of Shakespeare in modern times will be a unique and riveting version: one definitely not to miss.
