The Trial of the Jew Shylock

The Trial of the Jew ShylockT581509715
From Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. A powerful examination of the effects of extreme avarice, the misuse of wealth, influence and racial stereotyping, which leads to a culture of abuse - created by the dominant few - of those deemed to be outsiders. Poetic Justice has taken Shakespeare's work to devise a play which cuts to the chase in the wheeling, dealing money world. Here Shylock & Antonio, two major players, bitter rivals battling for supremacy, in a place where money equals power and the law; the spoils to the victor... to the loser, defeat and destruction.
