Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice is often regarded as the most controversial play The Bard has ever written. This is not peculiar: the tale of Italian merchant Antonio who signs a contract with the Jewish Shylock is riddled with antisemitic motives and questions the morality of the law. The Groningen University Theatre Society (GUTS) brings The Merchant of Venice to the Groninger stage in an authentic and completely English rendition.
The Merchant of Venice was performed at the VRIJDAG Theatre on the 16th, 17th and 18th of February 2018. For more information about the play, click here.
