Description

The Manovill Conversations
Loaded: Jews & Money

Villain? Victim? Or someone even more complex? Shylock, the Jewish moneylender in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, has always been a controversial character. In this powerful yet humorous solo performance by award-wining Welsh actor Guy Masterson, Shylock is explained by his friend Tubal via a series of clever impersonations, ranging from Pontius Pilate to Dracula to Hitler. This tour de force performance, a celebration of the beauty of language, offers a deeper understanding of the history of anti-Semitism.

"Shylock is a superb play, performed with humor, sensitivity and sheer brilliance by Guy Masterson."
– Edinburgh Fringe Review
