Morry Frenkel speaks with Ben Margalith and Shelley Krape, director and actor respectively, about Melbourne Shekespeare Company’s upcoming production of The Merchant of Venice. Ben talks about the humour found in the play as well as the darker side – the accusation that has been around for 400 years – that the play is anti-Semitic. Shelley, in a gender reversal role, plays Shylock and discusses how this adds another dimension to the character. The season of The Merchant of Venice runs from December 1st through to December 23rd at the Rose Garden in the St Kilda Botanical Gardens.
