What’sThe Merchant of Venice about?
In a society that exploits minorities to keep the majority in power, identity is everything.
When ostracised Jewish moneylender, Shylock, chases a debt he is rightfully owed, it exposes the fault lines of a culture built on religious and moral hypocrisy.
‘You have among you many a purchased slave,
Which, like your asses and your dogs and mules,
You use in abject and in slavish parts,
Because you bought them.’
– Act IV, scene 1
