For its fifth anniversary season, the Classical Theatre Company presents William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice
. Called a "tragic comedy" because it shares the best elements from both Shakespeare's romantic comedies and his dramatic tragedies, The Merchant of Venice
remains one of his most relevant plays with its timeless examinations of race, intolerance and pride. Intent on exploring those themes further, the CTC has re-set the play in a sorting room at Auschwitz, the Nazi extermination camp. This radical three-man staging pushes the racism discussed in the play to its historical extreme, placing one of humanity's most sublime works (Shakespeare's language) against one of its darkest (The Final Solution). Head to Studio 101 for this charged, unforgettable production of Shakespeare's masterpiece.
