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.
The Merchant of Venice is Shakespeare’s complex exploration of prejudice, patriarchy and capitalism. Director Abigail Graham brings together the personal and political in this re-imagining of Shylock’s play.
‘You have among you many a purchased slave,
Which, like your asses and your dogs and mules,
You use in abject and in slavish parts,
Because you bought them.’
– Act IV, scene 1
