Cleveland Play House/CWRU MFA Program
Professional Equity House Theatre

By: William Shakespeare

Show Description:
The deal was struck. The loan terms signed. Default comes with a lethal price, and now Antonio can’t pay up. Will mercy or retribution win out? The Merchant of Venice is a potent mix of suspense, romance, and courtroom drama rife with moral complexities. Join the CWRU/CPH MFA Acting Program’s Class of 2020 as they take on Shakespeare’s most provocative tale of money, privilege, and prejudice.
