The Merchant of Venice

15 Apr
When: Friday April 15th, 07:30 pm - 09:00 pm
Where: Academic Building, Blackbox Theatre

Director Logan Bennett brings “The Merchant of Venice” into the 21st Century. Set in a modern high school, the classic characters become students who struggle with- and create- the bigotry, bullying, and cycles of violence that are as tragically timeless as Shakespeare’s immortal words. In the world of this production the coin of the realm is cryptocurrency, texting is lingua franca, and the characters’ use of social media adds layers to the story.

Please note that this production, like the play as it was originally performed, carries stark and disturbing themes of social injustice that include racism, bigotry, and anti-Semitism and may not be appropriate for those sensitive to such subjects, or for young children.
