Illyria present The Merchant of Venice
By William Shakespeare

Sunday 22nd July 3:00pm (Gates 2:00pm)
Open Air Theatre in the Rock Garden

The Merchant of Venice is a funny play that deals with serious issues – in particular the keeping of promises. Wealthy Antonio borrows money from Shylock, and both are so confident about his paying it back that they jokingly adopt a ridiculous agreement: that Antonio will give Shylock a pound of his flesh should he default. Then events conspire against him so that he cannot repay the loan. Meanwhile Bassanio risks everything in the hope of winning the hand of Portia in marriage. Admittedly he succeeds – but when she gives him a ring to keep, and he is compelled to give it aw...ay, what future for their domestic bliss?

Shakespeare’s great courtroom drama is by turns gripping, funny, romantic and thought-provoking. International award-winning Illyria promise a production to keep you on the edge of your seat!

This is an outdoor production. Please dress for the weather both rain or shine, and bring a low-backed chair or rug to sit on.

The Rock Garden is situated behind the Arts Centre, and is wheelchair accessible. For further information regarding access, parking or any other particular issues, please contact the Box Office on 01695 584480.
