Synopsis


All that glisters is not gold.


Antonio will do anything for Bassanio.


Bassanio will do anything to win Portia and her wealth.


Shylock has the means and mind to take revenge on Antonio.


Can love possibly defeat hate, when the hate has grown from love?


The performers have no rehearsals, no idea of the plot, an audience watching and nowhere to hide.


With only the guidance of their lines, the performers create the cue-scripted performance as it is performed.


Watch the actors step into the unknown and gamble with every moment of the play.
