For the past 400 years, Shakespeare’s play – which features the famously controversial Jewish character of Shylock – has sparked discussion about Judaism and antisemitism in Western culture. It has also raised questions that are still hotly debated:  Is The Merchant of Venice an antisemitic play, or a play about antisemitism? Is Shylock a sympathetic character or a villain? How has the play continued to influence our society since it was first performed in 1605? Join us and add your voice to the discussion!
