The Mercy Dinner

The Mercy Dinner

Bell Shakespeare invites you to an afternoon performance of our 2017 national touring production of The Merchant Of Venice followed by an exclusive dinner overlooking Sydney Harbour.

During the meal, Artistic Director Peter Evans, Mitchell Butel (Shylock) and Catherine Davies (Narissa) will lead discussion on the play’s themes of justice and mercy, religious law and secular society, righteousness and compassion, tolerance and hate.

The occasion will raise vital funds towards our annual national touring production, taking Shakespeare’s timeless works into regional centres each year.
