Jonathan Munby directs Jonathan Pryce as money lender Shylock in this critically acclaimed staging of Shakespeare’s drama, which was recorded live on the stage of Shakespeare’s Globe in London in 2015. Bassanio (Dan Fredenburgh) asks his merchant friend Antonio (Dominic Mafham) for a loan of 3,000 ducats so he may travel to Belmont and woo his sweetheart, the lovely heiress, Portia (Rachel Pickup). Unfortunately, all of Antonio’s ships are at sea, so he is forced to borrow the funds from Jewish moneylender Shylock (Pryce), who tricks Antonio into promising a pound of his own flesh if he cannot pay the 3,000 ducats back in time. Antonio’s ships are subsequently lost and with the vessels, his personal fortune vanishes. Back in Venice, Shylock demands his pound of flesh and spirited Portia resolves to teach the moneylender a swift and brutal lesson in humility.
