Mer­chant of Venice Trip

mov200pxOn the 6th Novem­ber 2013 the whole of year 9 went on a trip to the Mar­lowe The­atre to watch a Shake­speare pro­duc­tion of The Mer­chant of Venice. The play was very inter­est­ing and the lan­guage was well spo­ken. Although the stage was small they used the space very well and made it look big­ger. Also the spe­cial effects like the blood and fake eye being pulled out looked very real­sitic! In the play the actors were all men to coin­cide with the Shake­speare theme, as women weren’t allowed to act in shake­spearean times. We had been ana­lyz­ing the play in our Eng­lish lessons learn­ing about the lan­guage and the his­tory in those days
