SHAKE 38: The Merchant of Venice

Left Bank Books

Left Bank Books welcomes the Shakespeare Fesitval Reads reading group, who will present an adaptation of The Merchant of Venice for Shakespeare Fesitval St. Louis' SHAKE 38!

The Merchant of Venice is an intriguing drama of love, greed, and revenge. At its heart, the play contrasts the characters of the maddened and vengeful Shylock, a Venetian moneylender, with the gracious, level-headed Portia, a wealthy young woman besieged by suitors. At the play's climax, Shylock insists on the enforcement of a binding contract that will cost the life of the merchant Antonio— inciting Portia to mount a memorable defense. 

This event is presented as part of Shakespeare Festival St. Louis’ SHAKE 38, a free, five-day community marathon of Shakespeare’s 38 plays. For more information and a full schedule, visit Be sure to follow #SHAKE38 on social media!
