Villain, victim or someone far more intriguing? Shylock explores the tragic, tempestuous, often unbelievable life of fiction’s most famous Jew.

Shylock has always divided opinion. There is no doubt he is hard done by in The Merchant of Venice, but does he bring it on himself? As one of only two Jewish men in the whole of Shakespeare, he has been portrayed in ways that reflected how Jews were popularly viewed - from comic villain to a victim of racial discrimination.

This award-winning, poignant, powerful yet humorous performance brings us Shylock afresh in one of the most globally successful solo shows of the last decade.

"Innovative, delightful, exceptional!" - The Independent

“This is as good as theatre gets. A privilege to watch.” - Liverpool Post

"Shylock deserves to be packed out every show. It reflects the deepest love and understanding of Shakespeare's genius, and mixes us adeptly into the problems, pressures, traditions, censors prejudices and passions of Elizabethan theatre." - The Scotsman
