Antonio, a merchant of Venice borrows from Shylock, a money lender, in order to fund his closest friend Bassanio’s courtship of Portia…A universal tale where friendship and love face fortune, enmity and greed. This is without doubt the most thought provoking and human of Shakespeare’s comedies. Part of this year’s Richmond upon Thames Literature Festival 4-27 November 2016.
