PrThe Merchant of Venice (2014)
PRINCIPAL CAST: Susannah Fielding (Portia); Scott Handy (Antonio); Ian McDiarmid (Shylock); Tom Weston-Jones (Bassanio).
This production ran from 5 December 2014 - 14 February 2015. This version of the play is a revival of Rupert Goold's 2011 production of the play, which was staged at the Royal Shakespeare Company between May and September of that year. A number of the cast at the Almeida were reprising their RSC leading roles: Jamie Beamish, Susannah Fielding, Scott Handy, Emily Plumtree along with Caroline Martin and Rebecca Brewer. The major re-casting was the replacement of Patrick Stewart's Shylock with Ian McDiarmid, who had previously played the part in 1984 at the RSC.
