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.
Goold strikes just the right balance in this problematic play.
Flashy, egregious and unflaggingly provocative.
Revelatory… What is really startling about this production is its non-stop inventiveness.
Exciting and enlivening… an outstanding performance by Susannah Fielding.
