The Montford Park Players, North Carolina's longest running Shakespeare Festival, present Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice." Although best remembered for its dramatic scenes, Shakespeare’s weighty tale of love, friendship, the nature of mercy and the nature of racism is actually a comedy. It also features some of Shakespeare’s best-known idioms, some of his most beautiful monologues and one of his strongest female characters, Portia. Is Shylock a villain or is his vengeance just? What exactly is the quality of mercy? And is all that glitters really gold? Come find out in our presentation of one of Shakespeare’s most important and controversial plays, "The Merchant of Venice."
