Real Canaan Theatre presents THE MERCHANT OF VENICE
Can justice and mercy co-exist?
In a culture of demonstration and forced relevancy, Real Canaan Theatre’s anti-gimmick, no frills approach is a deeply honest exploration of Shakespeare’s perhaps most controversial play. Focusing on human interaction through the medium of classical text, this production seeks to provoke discussion on the transcendence of character, identity politics, and relationship ideals. Balancing the spirit and letter of the law has never seemed a more daunting task.
THE MERCHANT OF VENICE is performed by Aaron MacPherson, Bridget Ori, Elyssia Giancola, Freya Scerri Diacono, Hadley Abrams, Kitti Laki, and Roberto Ercoli.
