A Merchant of Venice

A Merchant of VeniceT64226381
This new modern-day adaptation, entitled A Merchant of Venice, focuses on the tortured nature of love at the inner core of Shakespeare's play. Within Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice lies an inner play about a small network of relationships, one that wrestles with Justice and Mercy, Marriage and Money, Race and Class, one that, in essence, explores the tortured nature of Love. This new version focuses on six key characters whose entangled loves, desires and fortunes hinge on a better understanding of themselves and their relation to each other in the blackly comic world of a modern-day Venice.
Author Shakespeare
