The Merchant of Venice ...

How will this play reach me, ambitious young woman in a high-speed digital society?

How would I let men ask for my hand? Who gets the most likes on Facebook?  The most followers on Twitter? Who has the best one-lines in an chat?

 

For we all crave love but seem glued to our screens.

So how far would you really go for love? For those two arms that hold you?

If the demands are high, conditions impossible but the heart firm, are you someone who goes for it anyway? There are heart pledges? And I mean that literally.

Financial conflicts of interest, lawsuits, debts ... the merchant of Venice could  just as well be a businessman from Ghent.

Who will save this man?

Come discover ... provided that you may also lose a part of your heart.
