The Shylock is a Jewish diamond seller named Jacob, called “shylock” as a slur. The Shakespeareans are a gang of white supremacists, led by Jacob’s former clownish servant, Gobbo. It is a comedy colliding with a tragedy: Jacob’s daughter Jessica loves Lorenzo (here the son of Asian immigrants), Portia loves Bassanio and everyone can go home happy, just as long as one pesky lawsuit doesn’t dig up anything too ugly.

The Shylock and the Shakespeareans, presented by Untitled Theater Company #61, is written and directed by Edward Einhorn.
