Director Rebecca Gatward on The Merchant of Venice

30th May 2007

 

SHAKESPEARE: THE MERCHANT OF VENICE

Director Rebecca Gatward talks to Heather Neill about her production of this controversial play at Shakespeare’s Globe, and about how our anxieties about its anti-Semitism tend to blind us to its comedy.

We’ve created two locations, Venice and Belmont, with a bridge and landing platform, which makes the audience the waters of Venice.
