Inciting intersectionality and intercultural theatre in Vancouver and beyond.


Presented by Bard on the Beach

Directed by Sherry J. Yoon, stage managed by Yvonne Yip

Meet Jon Davies, an actor and a Jew, condemned by his own community for his portrayal of the Jewish moneylender in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. When the production is cancelled, Davies uses his final post-show talkback to raise provocative questions about censorship in general and the political correctness of Merchant itself. Shylock was first produced in 1996 at Bard and has since been staged around the world.
