William Shakespeare’s the Merchant of Venice

Now that the schedule for the 2020/21 activities of Trois 14 at the Cube Noir has been announced, I’m sure that we’re all delighted that Tagora and 

12 Angry Men have been given a prime 10 day slot from 5 October 2020.

However this means that The Merchant’s allocated performance dates for June 2021 have now been held over . Thus, I propose to submit a request to the Trois 14 Committee for a slot from Monday 29 November to Tuesday 7 December 2021. This would give three days of rehearsal and the possibility of eight performances  including two matinées at the weekend.  

My plan would be to cast in January 2021 and begin rehearsals in March including the usual breaks for school holidays etc

First thoughts are to set the play in the 1890s, to change the gender of several male roles, include live music and to play at least one scene in the French language…….. my thinking, at least for the moment!

In the hopes that this project might be of interest to both old and new members of Tagora, please do not hesitate to contact us.
