The Merchant of Venice
William Shakespeare
Directed by Ben Blyth

The Merchant of Venice is a stunning new site-specfic production set in Shoreditch Church (recognisable from the BBC series ‘Rev’) and burial place of Shakespeare’s greatest actor – Richard Burbage. The Malachites follow their 5-star production of ‘Titus Andronicus’ with an intense, anarchic view of the world through the prism of Shakespeare’s Venice.

The Malachites are working closely with Shoreditch Church (St Leonard’s Church) at the heart of a drive to reconnect Shakespeare with Shoreditch in the public consciousness. While Stratford has its Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Southwark has its Globe, Shoreditch (the original site of the Theatre and the Curtain) hosted the premieres of 19 of Shakespeare’s earliest plays (including the Merchant of Venice) and currently lies forgotten. With the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth this year, the time seems right to renew Shakespeare’s earlier work fit for the 21st century, and reconnect the borough with the Bard.
