 Humber River Shakespeare Company and Newmarket Public Library invite you to read the plays of Shakespeare aloud! In Venice, Bassanio tells his friend Antonio that he needs money to seek the wealthy Portia's hand in marriage. Antonio agrees to put up his property as a bond so that Bassanio can borrow 3,000 ducats from Shylock, another local merchant. But when Antonio is forced to default on the loan, Shylock demands his "pound of flesh". Come out and join us in reading one of the Bard's most well-known and admired plays.
