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, The Merchant Of Venice, makes its Almeida debut in a whirlwind of glitter, gambling and greenbacks.
Directed by the acclaimed Islington theatre’s Artistic Director Rupert Goold, this groundbreaking production of The Merchant Of Venice was originally staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2011.
Original cast members Jamie Beamish, Rebecca Brewer, Susannah Fielding, Scott Handy, Caroline Martin and Emily Plumtree will revive their roles.
