Hartke Theatre presents Shakespeare's controversial play The Merchant of Venice. Themes of humanity, dignity, revenge, cruelty, religion and greed are all explored in the character of Shylock, a vengeance-seeking moneylender who is one of Shakespeare's most tragic figures. The clever and well-spoken Portia is also one of his most prominent heroines, whose intelligence shines every bit as brightly as her beauty. See this classic tale that shows the tenacity of young people in love and calls into question the prejudices and beliefs of Renaissance-era Venice. Learn More

Enjoyed more than my viewing of the Washington Shakespeare Theatre's production of the same play earlier this year. Imaginative use of the stage, converting it into a black-box theater with ample set pieces. Well staged and acted by a solid company of undergraduate and graduate students.

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by CUA Professor/Head of the MFA Directing Eleanor Holdridge
Evil queens. Licentious villains. Royal princes stolen in their infancy. Unbridled jealousy. Magic potions. Urbane wits and comic halfwits. Mistaken identities, visitations of the gods, magic talismans and even a Deus ex Machina. All come together in an epic tale of courage and resilience as Shakespeare’s most intrepid heroine undergoes a hazardous journey to regain her lost love and find redemption.
Set against the ancient conflict of a declining Imperial Rome and an insurgent British population, myth and history collide in a grand and timely adventure.
