Celebrating their 11th season of performing in the open air of Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, the Ohio Shakespeare Festival dons their most billowing pantaloons for their production of Shakespeare’s celebrated and complicated tragicomedy, The Merchant of Venice. The play begins when the titular merchant, Antonio, takes out a loan of 3,000 ducats so that his friend, Bassanio, may court the lovely and wealthy Portia. However, Shylock, the loan’s holder, stipulates a grim transaction should they be unable to repay him: a pound of Antonio’s flesh. As Antonio’s fortunes begin to turn, he finds himself drawing ever closer to Shylock’s knife and, even worse, the strange machinations of the legal system.
Guests are invited to bring a picnic before the show to be enjoyed at the gardens’ Lagoon. Surrounded by the green and yellow shades of impressionistic greenery, audiences can feast and admire several majestic pools, the largest of which runs 15 feet deep

About Ohio Shakespeare Festival
"If you’ve ever wished that a Shakespeare production could somehow be outfitted with annotations and footnotes, to help you understand what’s going on at every moment, there’s a much easier (and more enjoyable) alternative,” says theater critic Christine Howey. “Just sit in the audience while the Ohio Shakespeare Festival is performing.” The lively and fun characterizations are a fitting approach to the works of the ever-sly Bard.
