Shakespeare's darkest comedy explores bigotry, justice, and the limitations of the law. The young Venetian gentleman Bassanio has squandered all his money, but he needs 3,000 ducats so that he can travel to Belmont and woo the beautiful heiress Portia. His devoted friend Antonio helps him by borrowing the cash from the moneylender Shylock. But when Antonio is forced to default on the loan, Shylock seeks a gruesome revenge...and Portia and Bassanio find themselves in a desperate struggle to save Antonio's life.
