Shylock

Vicksburg Theatre Guild presents “Shylock,” a Wanderlust Theatre Company Production by Mark Leiren-Young, featuring Vicksburg native M. Brady McKellar, June 4-5, 2011. “Shylock” is an award-winning one-man play about a Jewish actor who finds himself condemned by his own community for his portrayal of Shakespeare's notorious Jew. This piece has provided much fuel for the fiery debates surrounding censorship, historical revisionism, political correctness, and the thorny discussion of whether certain plays are suitable for contemporary productions, Shakespeare's “The Merchant of Venice” amongst them. http://www.e-vtg.com/2010-2011/shylock/shylock.htm
