Krystel Lucas as Portia in The Old Globe’s Shakespeare Festival production of “The Merchant of Venice”

Shakespeare’s unforgettable tale of mercy and justice, generosity and greed, “The Merchant of Venice,” is directed by Adrian Nobel and runs through September 28, 2013 at the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre.

After years of persecution for his Jewish faith, Shylock finally gets his chance for revenge. The merchant Antonio cannot pay his debt, and Shylock demands his due: a pound of flesh. To save Antonio’s life, the resourceful Portia must triumph in the courtroom—but at what cost? “The Merchant of Venice” weaves together humor and pathos in a spellbinding, suspenseful drama.
