SHYLOCK

‘The tragic, funny and often unbelievable life of fiction’s most famous Jew’.

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 a born comic storyteller.

Celebrating the richness of Shakespeare’s language and conjuring up a whole cast of characters from Portia to Pontius Pilate, from Romeo to Max Reinhardt, and from Barabbas to Richard Burbage, this dazzling, moving, often hilarious play is a fascinating exploration of Shylock and his people.

Written and Directed by Gareth Armstrong
Performed by Rhodri Miles (Seilioc (Welsh language version of Shylock), Burton and Dylan Thomas: Clown in the Moon.

SHYLOCK runs 90 minutes and plays with an interval.
