Villain, victim or something even more intriguing? British actor Guy Masterson, an Olivier award-winner, renowned for his solo performances, explores the tragic, tempestuous fate of one of literature’s most divisive figures. This fiercely comedic one-man show gets right to the heart of Shylock, the moneylender who demands a pound of flesh for an unpaid debt in Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice. With references from the Bible to Dracula, the show delves deep into stereotypes and identity, spanning 400 years of Shakespearean interpretations and 2000 years of history in 90 spellbinding minutes! This poignant performance celebrates the beauty of language, the power of history and the magic of theatre. "Innovative, delightful, exceptional!" - The Independent "This is as good as theatre gets… A privilege to watch" - Liverpool Post Don’t miss Guy Masterson’s companion solo show Under Milk Wood. Celebrating a day in the life of a small Welsh seaside village, Dylan Thomas’ timeless masterpiece is hilariously recreated in this astonishing one-man show.
