Explore the tragic, funny and often unbelievable life of fiction’s most famous Jew in this acclaimed theatre production that has toured over 50 countries.

Written and performed by Gareth Armstrong, this is a play that explores the world of Shakespeare’s most controversial character, Shylock from the Merchant of Venice. The play examines religious and racial intolerance, the history of plays in performance and, above all, celebrates the richness of Shakespeare’s language.

Gareth, who has played leading roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company, in the West End and at Shakespeare’s Globe, first performed Shylock at the 1997 Edinburgh Fringe, receiving positive reviews in the national press and 5 Stars from the Festival critics.

“…Armstrong is nothing short of incredible…It is an exceptional piece of theatre. Everyone should see it.”
