The Merchant of Venice details the story of a Jewish moneylender who demands that an antisemitic Christian offer “a pound of flesh” as forfeit against a loan.

The director was fascinated by the idea of candles and golden embellishments all around the outdoor New Swan theater to reflect the pious artifice of the Christian characters.
