All that glisters is not gold. So warns Shakespeare’s increasingly relevant problem play. Through the story of several characters caught in a world rampant with antisemitism and hate, Shakespeare invites us to ask ourselves what makes a villain? What makes a hero? Where do we draw the line between justice and cruelty? And that perhaps the divide between the two is not as simple as we might like to think.
