Event Details


Shylock. A Villain? A victim? Or something even more intriguing?

Gareth Armstrong’s award-winning play confronts and confounds the stereotypes through the eyes of Shylock’s only friend – and the only other Jewish man in all 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, this dazzling, moving, often hilarious play is a fascinating exploration of Shylock and his people.
