Playwrights Robert Gordon and David Peimer present their new play.

Shakespeare’s ‘outsiders’ Shylock and Caliban talk back to the societies that have persecuted them over centuries. Their stories speak urgently. Who is a citizen? Who an ‘alien’? As recurring forces of racism and nationalism frame cultural identity, where do Shylock and Caliban belong? With original African and Jewish music, the play promises a surprising new approach to The Merchant of Venice and The Tempest as the characters speak to our times.

This 50-minute play will be followed by a Q & A with Gordon, Peimer and guests.

Robert Gordon is Professor of Theatre and Director of the Pinter Centre for Performance and Creative Writing at Goldsmiths, University.

David Peimer is an award-winning playwright, librettist and directs theatre for the Pinter Centre in London.

NobuLali Dangazele is completing her PhD at Warwick University.

Kyle Darroch graduated with a BA in Drama and Theatre Arts from Goldsmiths, University of London.

Sponsored by Baginsky Cohen.
