Home What's On Theatre Shylock

Theatre: Shylock

Shylock is "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.

Shylock is written and directed by Gareth Armstrong and performed by Rhodri Miles (Seilioc - Welsh language version of Shylock - Burton and Dylan Thomas: Clown in the Moon).
