With time being precious during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe we challenged this year’s acts to deliver a 50-word elevator pitch for their show. This time it’s the turn of Gratiano.
We never thought we’d play the villain in our lives. Gratiano recounts his part in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, now set in Mussolini’s Italy, and explores how politicians can use the politics of hate and democracy to turn a people against each other.
What other show shouldn’t we miss?
