Watch the Royal Shakespeare Company production of The Merchant of Venice on BBC iPlayer.

In the melting pot of Venice, trade is God. When the gold is flowing all is well - but when a contract between Bassanio and Shylock is broken, simmering racial tensions boil over. A wronged father, and despised outsider, Shylock looks to exact the ultimate price for a deal sealed in blood. Polly Findlay directs this Royal Shakespeare Company production of Shakespeare’s uncompromising play with Makram J. Khoury as Shylock, Patsy Ferran as Portia and Jamie Ballard as Antonio.
