A new one man play from the team that brought you Burton and Dylan Thomas: Clown in the Moon. –

‘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?

He has been portrayed in ways which reflected how Jews were popularly viewed – from comic villain in Shakespeare’s day to a victim of racial discrimination nowadays. 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 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)

“Innovative, delightful, exceptional!”(The Independent)
