Merchant of Venice
presented by Sweet Tea Shakespeare
Thurs.-Sun., June 9-12 & 16-19
Merchant of Venice can be described as a convoluted carnival of love and loyalty. Business becomes personal when, to help a friend find love, a local merchant becomes wrapped up in a debt he can’t repay. The story behind one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays” follows friends, lovers and enemies as they pursue freedom, revenge and justice. Mortal enemies cause a clash of cultures in Venice and young lovers must choose between friends and family in Belmont. Will love and mercy triumph over hate and revenge? Ticket prices are $12 for general admission, $10 for seniors and military, $6 for students and children, and free for 5 years old and younger. BRING YOU OWN SEATING!
