Merchant of Venice Week Two

As our second week of run begins I’m finding the urge to start with a Shakespearean quote too tempting but even I’m not that wanky. 

 
Anyway, once more into the Jack dear friends. And what a great crowd! We have been very lucky with our audiences whom, for the most part have been wonderfully receptive. Tonight we had a group of ladies in and these ladies are the reason Shakespeare is still necessary. They were wonderful. So invested in the drama and action were they that when Shylock *spoiler* proposes a “pound of flesh” as collateral one of the ladies gasped and sat catching flies for the remainder of the scene. 
 
It’s fantastic and inspiring to watch people actually just take it in for what it is. A play. A play with twists and turns and drama and gasp moments.
