Can the romantic, fairy-tale world of Belmont trimuph over the hard-headed, headonistic and cut-throat city of Venice? Can love temper, sooth and outlive prejudice and intolerance? Can mercy overcome the destructive force of bitter revenge? Can music, joy and laughter conquer the ever-present threat of looming tragedy?
World's collide, shatter and renew in Bedouin Shakespeare Company's gender-balanced rework of one of Shakespeare's most popular, challenging and thought-provoking plays.
First performed at the stunning Silvano Toti Globe Theatre in Rome and then back to London for one night only at the West End's Duke of York's Theatre. With the signature Bedouin style of minimalist set, a handful of instruments and a tonne of characters to multi-role, this exciting new production promises to be an evening not to be missed.
