WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Decide for yourself...who's right, who's wrong? This Shakespearean courtroom drama puts religion, money, justice, and mercy on trial, but the story is ultimately one of love - and what you are willing to sacrifice in its pursuit. Bassanio, a suitor longing for the love of the alluring Portia, borrows money from his friend Antonio - the merchant who has struck a deal with the money lender, Shylock. Discover what happens when Antonio's ships are lost at sea and he cannot repay his debt. Will Shylock succeed in obtaining his unyielding demand of a "pound of flesh," or will mercy prevail and love reign in the end.
