STREAMING LIVE ONLINE OR IN-PERSON (LIMITED AVAILABILITY)
In Shylock , a co-production by Silicon Valley Shakespeare and The Tabard Theatre Company, a Jewish actor playing Shakespeare’s notorious money-lender as a villain attracts unwelcome protests and controversy at a Shakespeare festival. The actor’s contentious production of The Merchant of Venice has just been shut down, and Shylock presents the actor holding a talkback session to defend his work.
Performed live online* from Tabard’s stage, using a multi-camera stream, Shylock is packed with ideas of censorship, history, representation, and the nature of art – it’s a testament to the power of The Bard sparking rich discussion and strong opinions.
*In addition to online streaming, a limited amount of in-person tickets are also available. See below for requirements and safety precautions.
