Merchant of Venice

Richard Appignanesi, William Shakespeare, Faye Yong


One of Shakespeare’s greatest and, in recent years, most controversial plays. After borrowing a large sum of money from the Jewish money-lender Shylock, the merchant Antonio faces a devastating credit crunch when his fleet of ships is sunk in a storm. Shylock insists on the small print of his terms and conditions, seeking a literal ‘pound of flesh’.
