Do You Play The Villain?
Bassanio has been murdered and, under suspicion, Gratiano is forced to revisit his Fascist past. He was never the hero – just a minor character, the plucky comic relief – but he never thought he played the villain. In a thought-provoking sequel to William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice we explore the politics of prejudice and how politicians use democracy to turn a people against themselves.
