This production consists of two one-act versions of Shakespeare’s well known plays, ‘The Merchant of Venice’, and ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’. Raw Shakespeare hopes these new versions will appeal to the theatre-going public of today as much as they did to audiences in the 17th Century.

The theme of our show is love in all its forms. In the atmospheric ‘The Merchant of Venice’ we see the courtly love Bassanio has for Portia, which drives him to borrow money from Antonio to win the fair maid’s hands. We see the thwarted love Antonio has for Bassanio, and how it drives him to demand his pound of flesh.

Things take a decidedly lusty turn in ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’ as Sir John Falstaff decides to fund his retirement using Master Ford’s money. The only complication is Master Ford. Falstaff’s solution is to seduce Mistress Ford which, owing to Mistress Ford’s awareness of the situation, may not go quite the way he plans.
