The Merchant of Venice at The Genesian Theatre, Sydney

Looking for a great night out? On Friday 2 March @ 8.00pm, The Genesian Theatre (Sydney) is hosting a charity night for Caritas Australia’s Project Compassion.

Tickets for William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice are $25 each and can be purchased online or by calling 1300 237 217.

“In Shakespeare's Venice wild carnivals are held, money is thrown around and lovers fiendishly disguise themselves. The city and its rollicking citizens are extravagant and verging on the grotesque. Caught in the middle of this whirlwind of scandal and festivity are Antonio and Shylock.

They are floating through surreal circumstances, displaced, angry and bound by a wager of flesh. Shylock is brutally persecuted and made evil. Antonio is disenchanted and recklessly assists Bassanio, trying to find a place in the new world.

The Merchant and the Money Lender are at odds with each other and yet, are somehow united as both are losing their grip in a Venice that is sinking into economic, cultural and judicial madness.

A delirious comedy, a dark fable, this heartbreaking tale of loss, love and revenge will be unmissable.”
