The Merchant Of Venice: Cambridge University European Theatre Group (CUETG)

All that glisters is not gold, Often have you heard that told..

Young hot-shot Bassanio's in a hell of a lot of debt. His magic solution? To court and marry wealthy heiress, Portia. All he needs is a good suit, speedy boat and a loan of three thousand ducats. But if the loan isn't repaid in time, money-lender Shylock will be demanding more than just cash…

This winter, Cambridge's longest-running theatre tour will be taking on Shakespeare's most controversial 'comedy'. Set in the urban playground which is contemporary Naples, this daring production will look with unflinching eyes at man's inhumanity to man, and the Western world's obsession with wealth and beauty, through the lense of, amongst other things, Berlusconi's immigration policy, the shiny horror of reality television, and the intertia and despondency of euro-trash youth culture.
