Example text

As with Shylock, the dialogue argues differently. For Lancelot's practical joke misfires. Poignantly, his father is only too fully taken in, so that the emphasis falls on his blindness and not his openness to trickery: 'Alack, sir, I am sand-blind. I know you not' [II ii 68; I omit the Penguin edition's exclamation mark]. As elsewhere the play reminds its audiences of what they may be laughing at. Gratiano is one of the main sources of this unsettling comedy. Crass, insensitive figures such as he are often humorous on stage.

Portia was an heiress whose home, richly and ornately furnished, was a monument to conspicuous consumption. Consequently a second effect was to demystify, even debunk, Belmont. Instead of exploiting the contrast between Venice and Belmont as so many previous productions had done, this one played it down. Belmont, it was suggested, was neither romantic nor mysterious, but the product of money too. Accordingly, although the country house trappings impressed as intended, the first two casket scenes were played for laughs.

The result was little sense of threat that the wrong husband might claim Portia, especially as Plowright gave her considerable confidence and authority. It was difficult to believe in a mature lady as 'an unlessoned girl' [III ii 159], so she played the line ironically. Elsewhere also Portia's characterisation was too often subordinated to the demands of the production. In Belmont she was inclined to bossiness, very much the lady of the house. The production rightly emphasised that Jessica is not made very welcome, so Portia could not even remember her name.
