Merchant of Venice

by William Shakespeare

Stratford Festival 2019


“By my soul, I swear, there is no power in the tongue of man to alter me."


REVIEWS


"The Merchant of Venice is a story of prejudice, social injustice, money and love. When a merchant must default on a large loan from a Jewish moneylender for a friend with romantic ambitions, the fiercely unforgiving creditor demands a grim payment instead. Starring one of Canada’s most renowned stage actors Seana Mckenna as Shylock and under the deft direction of one of America’s most powerful, innovative leaders, Carey Perloff."
