About This Project


The celebrated show, Shylock, written and directed by Gareth Armstrong and performed by Olivier award winning actor, Guy Masterson-Mastroianni, was produced for the Teatro Filodrammatici di Milano by Julia Holden, Maggie Rose and Salvatore Cabras, with Italian translation and surtitles by Salvatore Cabras in March 2018.


Celebrating the richness of Shakespeare’s language and conjuring a host of characters from The Merchant of Venice, this dazzling moving and witty one-man- play is a fascinating exploration of the fictional character, Shylock, Shakespeare himself and Jewish history through the ages. It brings Shakespeare to life, history to the forefront and magic to the stage.
