"The Merchant of Venice" continues at Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival

by Paul Murphy

As the professional theater-in-residence at Notre Dame since 2000, the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival presents world-class productions on its mainstage while fostering young actors through unique educational performance opportunities such as its Young Company and ShakeScenes programs.

The Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival (NDSF) is presenting William Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice” until August 28 at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. The play, directed by David Bell, begins with Bassanio’s quest for Portia. When plans go awry, betrayal and blind anger strike, leaving all to question justice, the power of love and how far all are prepared to go in order to belong.
