Things are getting very exciting as we gear up to perform William Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice” in the Cúirt International Festival of Literature, 2014. This is the last leg of our Spring Programme, which has been a phenomenal success. It has taken us all over this country and even outside of it!
Now, we plan to put the finishing touches on the whole thing with this fantastic play about power and reciprocity… One man wagers his life on a contract which causes immeasurable change to everyone around him. ‘The Merchant of Venice’ investigates bonds of all forms from legal contracts to marriages, all in a world where a one’s word means everything.
With a cast of 12 truly impressive performers and under the directorial guidance of Darragh O’Brien, this production will be one to remember.
