The Merchant of Venice archiveShylock is a proud and defiant man. But when he demands a severe debt to be repaid he becomes a victim of his own intransigence and most seriously, the prejudice of others. It is 1928 - just prior to the Wall Street Crash and the rise of the Third Reich. Money many not be able to buy you happiness, but it can certainly buy just about everything else. Thus, the price is right for Shylock the Jew in insisting on his pound of flesh when the merchant Antonio's investments literally go adrift. And the beautiful Portia is the star prize for any entrepreneurial gambler who guesses correctly when 'opening the box'.


Paul Rider, Camilla Artwedson, Robert Boulter, Robin Bowerman, Peter Caulfield, Fiona Hampton, Sydney Smith, Haz Webb
