Is Shylock, the Jewish moneylender from The Merchant of Venice a villain or victim?
Gareth Armstrong's award winning solo play confronts these Jewish stereotypes through the eyes of his only friend - and the only other Jewish man in the whole of Shakespeare - Tubal. Promoted to centre stage from his minor role in The Merchant of Venice, he proves to be a born comic storyteller.
Celebrating the richness of Shakespeare's language this dazzling, moving, often hilarious play is a fascinating exploration of Shylock and his people.
