Ambition, power and political unrest explode onto the stage in The Merchant of Venice 1936, direct from the RSC, and starring Tracy-Ann Oberman (EastEnders, Doctor Who) as Shylock alongside Gavin Fowler, and Nancy Farino at the New Theatre.
Shakespeare’s classic is transported to 1930s Britain in this ‘striking and impactful’ (Guardian) new production that ‘makes theatre history’ (Telegraph), from acclaimed director Brigid Larmour.
Tensions in London’s East End are rising and Shylock, a resilient single mother and hard-working businesswoman, is desperate to protect her daughter’s future. When the charismatic merchant Antonio comes to her for a loan, a high-stakes deal is struck. Will Shylock take her revenge, and who will pay the ultimate price?
