The Merchant of Venice

Date: Tuesday, 4 October 2016

Where: QUT Gardens Theatre

Featuring Second-year QUT Bachelor of Fine Arts (Acting) students, The Merchant of Venice is part comedy, part romance, part tragedy. The story of Shylock’s famous loan to the merchant Antonio, secured by the infamous ‘pound of flesh’ illustrates everything complicated that arises when societies are navigating difference and negotiating the ‘other’, with nothing to guide them but their own social and cultural prejudices.

On show at QUT Gardens Theatre 4 – 8 October
