William Shakespeare: The Merchant of Venice, directed by Polly Findlay / Nadia Albina, Jamie Ballard, Scarlett Brookes, James Corrigan, Makram Khoury, Owen Findlay [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

In the melting pot of Venice, trade is God. With its ships plying the globe, the city opens its arms to all - as long as they come prepared to do business and there is profit to be made. When the gold is flowing, all is well - but when a contract between Bassanio and Shylock is broken, simmering racial tensions boil over. A wronged father, and despised outsider, Shylock looks to exact the ultimate price for a deal sealed in blood. "this haunting production crackles with tension... There is evidence of crisp, fresh thinking in every scene of this excellent production" (The Evening Standard - 5 Stars) "The Palestinian actor Makram J Khoury is a touching Shylock." (The Guardian)
