Texas Theatre and Dance presents The Merchant of Venice (Preview Performance)

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Adam L. Sussman 

A businesswoman, hated for being Jewish, tries to break into the clique of rich men who run Venice. A wealthy merchant seeks to buy the love of a young man. A sheltered heiress attempts to escape her dead father's will. One of Shakespeare's most controversial and misunderstood plays, this production of The Merchant of Venice tackles, head-on, the topics of anti-Semitism, misogyny and homophobia in society. 

Part scathing social satire, part romantic comedy, part revenge thriller, The Merchant of Venice defies expectations and asks us to examine what hatred we hold in our hearts. 

The running time for The Merchant of Venice is approximately two hours with one intermission.
