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

Exciting and enlivening… an outstanding performance by Susannah Fielding.

Evening Standard

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

The Guardian

Flashy, egregious and unflaggingly provocative.

The Independent

Goold strikes just the right balance in this problematic play.
