The Merchant of Venice

The Merchant of Venice

Everyone’s out to make a killing; but everything comes at a price.

Overview

In a faraway palace, a wealthy heiress is looking for a husband. Back at home, a wealthy merchant is looking for a loan. Everyone’s out to make a killing; but everything comes at a price.

Explosively relocated to Las Vegas, Shakespeare’s most controversial play makes its Almeida debut in a whirlwind of glitter, gambling and greenbacks.

Critic reviews

Goold strikes just the right balance in this problematic play.

Financial Times

Flashy, egregious and unflaggingly provocative.

The Independent

Revelatory… What is really startling about this production is its non-stop inventiveness.

The Guardian

Exciting and enlivening… an outstanding performance by Susannah Fielding.
