Shakespeare’s complex exploration of prejudice, patriarchy and capitalism

Review this show

Overview

In a society that exploits minorities to keep the majority in power, identity is everything.

When ostracised Jewish moneylender, Shylock, chases a debt he is rightfully owed, it exposes the fault lines of a culture built on religious and moral hypocrisy.

Director Abigail Graham brings together the personal and political in this re-imagining of Shylock’s play.
