The Merchant of Venice
In Shakespeare’s classic tale about prejudice, revenge, justice, and redemption, one man's efforts to win his lady's love amid the fierce religious divide and bigotry of the Renaissance sets in motion a questionable business deal between his friend, the Merchant of Venice, and Shylock the Jew. The shocking consequences of that deal call into question the beliefs of Venice's people, expose the tangled legal strains of mercy versus justice, and test the tenacity of young men and women in love.
