Exploring a character
Under John Barton's direction, two members of the Royal Shakespeare Company explore Shakespeare's character Shylock to demonstrate how Shakespeare develops a character, and the multiplicity of ways in which his characters can be understood. Given the same text from The merchant of Venice, the different readings of the part demonstrate the infinite variety of Shakespeare's work.
