The Merchant of Venice
    By William Shakespeare

    19:45, Tue 16th May 2017 - Sat 20th May 2017 at ADC Theatre
    Easter Week 3

    The place is Venice. The time is a few years from now. After a period of political and religious upheaval, this once famous city has been submerged by flooding. The world has been thrown into disarray and in Venice two clear groups have emerged: those above the water and those down below. As the former borrow money from Shylock - confined to the submerged Venetian slums - this Jewish matriarch seizes her opportunity for revenge.

    Shakespeare’s most divisive play comes to the ADC stage, exploring what happens when society steals all it can.

    In a world where the rich make the rules and chaos is the currency, how easy is it to take revenge when you no longer have anything to lose?
