The People's Shakespeare Project: The Merchant of Venice. "Money is your suit" as Shylock, the money lender, says to the merchant, Antonio. The Venice is all about money where buying, selling, lending  and borrowing is the name of the game. Where ugly prejudice and violence against Shylock, "The Jew", is acceptable behavior...until his money is needed. Where the outcast who has silently suffered this abust his entire life is finally driven to revenge. This is a powerful play that encourages us to dig beneath the shiny surface and face ourselves. It's what Shakespeare does best!
