Julia Pascal

Published by Oberon

Reviving the themes of Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice and placing them within a modern context and setting, Julia Pascal's provocative and controversial drama seeks to question how the antisemitic portrayal of Shakespeare's Shylock has impacted modern-day attitudes towards the Jewish people

Set in the present day within the locale of the Venice Ghetto, The Shylock Play follows the emotional experiences of Warsaw Ghetto-escapee Sarah, who when visiting the Venice Ghetto happens to witness a group of actors staging a dress rehearsal of Merchant of Venice, and is confronted by the terrible story of 'The Jew' which touches her own life
