This production is a bold reimagining of The Merchant of Venice, set in modern Britain, with the location of Venice transposed to the corporate business district of London. Told through a modern lens, the play will focus on the rise of antisemitism, hate crimes and conspiracy theories. The chamber of the Cambridge Union provides the perfect space to unpick the politics of our mercantilist and transactional world, exploring how spaces of the establishment can both exclude and empower. This production will entertain and challenge in equal measure.
