MERCHANT OF VENICE, The Musical Stage Play

DER KAUFMANN by Rody Vera
ANG NEGOSYANTE NG VENECIA by Rolando Tinio
MERCHANT OF VENICE by William Shakespeare

The Merchant of Venice was written by William Shakespeare between 1596 and 1598. Though it has been classified as a comedy in his compilation of plays known as the “First Folio”, sharing certain aspects with other romantic comedies, The Merchant of Venice is popularly known for its dramatic scenes and speeches such as “Hath not a Jew’s eyes” and Portia’s speech about the “quality of mercy”.

This play is about a bitter detested Jewish moneylender who seeks revenge against a Christian merchant who has defaulted on a loan. TP’s version will be a departure from the usual interpretation. A play within a play, it will be set during the Holocaust and Nazis directing the Jewish “actors” and will underscore the dehumanizing effect of racism and intolerance.
