The Summer Theatre Company present Shakespeare's Comedy The Merchant of Venice as the annual Ellen Terry Memorial Production in the Barn Theatre at Smallhythe. In 16th century Venice, when a merchant must default on a large loan from an abused Jewish moneylender for a friend with romantic ambitions, the bitterly vengeful creditor demands a gruesome payment instead. A courtroom drama, a story of love, hate and betrayal, choice and rejection, comedy and tragedy -  it's all there told in Shakespeare's glorious poetry and prose.
