Money makes the world go around. Portia has it. Bassanio wants it. Shylock lends it. Antonio owes the value of it. Love also plays a part. Portia offers it. Bassanio wants it. And Antonio may lose a pound of flesh for it.

between those that have, and those that don’t. Dark in its humour and bawdy in its romantic hijinks, THE MERCHANT OF VENICE will take you on a journey of love, mercy and justice.
