By Arnold Wesker. A startling new perspective on an age-old story. Shylock's close friend, Antonio, needs a loan; but 16th-century Venetian law discriminates against Jews, and, for Shylock's own protection, Antonio persuades him to agree on a bond. They laugh as Shylock invents the absurd forfeit of a pound of flesh ... but their mockery of the law could so easily turn to tragedy.
