Presented by the Pop-up Globe King’s Company.

“The villainy you teach me I will execute…”

Already deep in debt to his best friend, Bassanio requires just one more loan to finance his scheme to woo and win the wealthy heiress Portia. But with Antonio’s capital all tied up in foreign trade, the two friends turn to the villainous moneylender Shylock, who agrees to fund their venture on one condition: if the debt is not repaid on time, the forfeit will be a pound of Antonio’s flesh. Blindly confident of success, Antonio accepts the fatal wager, unaware that when the due date comes he will be gambling for his life…

Friendship, forbidden love, cunning disguises and ancient enmity culminate in a thrilling trial scene in Shakespeare’s most controversial comedy. The Merchant of Venice is brought to you by the Pop-up Globe King’s Company.

Based on the performance tradition of 1614, the King's Company are Pop-up Globe’s resident all-male company of actors and musicians, drawn from around the world. Working with international theatre experts and creatives, they will transport you four hundred years into the past for the extraordinary experience of seeing Shakespeare’s plays performed in the space for which they were written.
