From 5th February, the Brussels Shakespeare Society takes to the stage with The Merchant of Venice. Just two weeks before the curtain raising, Radio X Reporter, Alison Turner, went along to rehearsal to meet the cast and director, Tracie Ryan. It’s a joyful group, excited for their performance. Tracie reveals that Andrew Visnevski from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art will be visiting the Company soon. Tracie is confident in her decision to set the production in the late 1920s, promising a glamorous, sound-rich production, reminiscent of a radio play. Discover more about the long term relationship many expats in Brussels have with local theatre groups.
The play will run from 5th to 9th February 2013 at the Scarabaeus Theater (Rue Creuse).
