Gabriel Kirkley as Antonio

Merchant of Venice is a play of many threes

Play features a trio of the Bard's most memorable characters: Shylock, Portia and Antonio.

The Merchant of Venice by Shakespeare continues this weeked at the UFV Theatre on the Chilliwack North campus.

Merchant features a trio of the Bard’s most memorable characters: Shylock, Portia and Antonio. It’s also a play of many threes: three lovers, three cultures, three rings and three wise questions, making it the perfect choice for the department’s 33rd season of theatre.

The piece asks probing questions: Where does love come from? Why do people of different races and religions distrust each other? What is the quality of mercy? Judge for yourself when you see The Merchant of Venice.

Director and department head Bruce Kirkley has assembled a talented cast and crew of UFV Theatre students for this demanding production.

The Merchant of Venice in the theatre on the Chilliwack North campus at the corner of Yale and Airport, March 21, 22, and 23. Matinee on Sunday, March 24 at 2 pm. Tickets $10 to $22. 604-795-2814 or email: or
