Justice & MercyOwn: £25.00
This bundle includes The Merchant of Venice, Richard II, and Measure for Measure from Shakespeare's Globe's 2015 season 'Justice & Mercy'.
The Merchant of Venice
In some of his most highly-charged scenes, Shakespeare dramatises the competing claims of tolerance and intolerance, religious law and civil society, justice and mercy; while in the character of Shylock he created one of the most memorable outsiders in all theatre.
Dazzlingly eloquent and ceremonious, Richard II invests a weak and self-dramatising man with tragic status and represents Shakespeare’s most searching exploration of the meaning of kingship and the rising powers that can destroy it.
Measure for Measure
Injustice, hypocrisy and the challenge of inflexible virtue combine in Shakespeare’s most searching exploration of sexual politics and social justice.
