If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh?  And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?

In modern Venice, where austerity prevails for all but those at the top, Portia, a wealthy heiress, is looking for a suitor. Bassanio borrows money from Antonio to finance his attempt to win her over. Antonio in turn, takes a loan from the moneylender Shylock.

When the contract is broken, racial tensions boil over in electrifying courtroom scenes, as Shakespeare’s most unforgettable outcast demands his pound of flesh.

Shakespeare's iconic tale of prejudice, justice and mercy is set against austerity and immigration in a specially commissioned abridgement by Tom Stoppard.
