For one night only in the U.S., Shakespeare’s Globe reclaims Shakespeare’s disturbing tale in a bold, modern reimagining of The Merchant of Venice. Directed by Abigail Graham, The Merchant of Venice unfolds as Antonio is unable to pay back a loan from Shylock, who has requested a “pound of his own flesh,” and turns to his friend Bassanio for help. This screening of the filmed production of The Merchant of Venice, which asks us to confront and question our own prejudices in the here and now, will be followed by a discussion about the play and its contemporary context of antisemitism and racism with a panel of experts.
