WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

For new theatergoers and those unfamiliar with the story line, this is the "Bard's" provocative look at love, debt and justice amongst the merchants, lawyers and moneylenders in the Venice of the Renaissance. Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice revolves around the money-lender Shylock and the "pound of flesh" he attempts to extract from Antonio (the "merchant" referred to in the title) and a creditor who is behind in his payments. The Summer Shakespeare Series will perform The Merchant of Venice on the Lincroft campus' Great Lawn throughout the month of July. All performances are free and no tickets are required and open to the community.
