The Merchant of Venice

2 hr 9 min | Royal Shakespeare Company | 2017

When a merchant defaults on a loan from a moneylender, it is more than money that will be demanded from him. Considered one of Shakespeare's greatest comedies, The Merchant of Venice remains a searing exploration of prejudice and the power of mercy.
