“Jews Don't Count” wrote David Baddiel in his provocative book analysing how Jews are treated as a 'difficult' minority in British identity politics. As a playwright and theatre director, Jews have always counted for me. The majority of my stage plays spotlight hidden Jewish narratives.

The Merchant of Venice is vastly considered to be Shakespeare’s most controversial and problematic play and director Abigail Graham does not shy away from the tough antisemitic and racist themes covered in the bard’s text.
by Dara Homer - Mar 27, 2022
The Merchant of Venice is traditionally categorized as a comedy, but the character of Shylock anchors one of Shakespeare’s most maddening tragic arcs. Here, Shylock is played by the magnificent John Douglas Thompson, whose powerful interpretations of the character's frank yet contorted appeals for justice make this production unmissable.

Opening night of the first play of the Shoreside's Auckland Shakespeare in the Park - and it's a clever comedy, its controversy eloquently driven by polarised emotions: friendship, revenge, love, hate, justice, mercy. Whether this is your first time or another of many viewings, there is much to surprise, engage and amuse you in the superb and imaginative direction by the director, Trevor Sharpe. Shakespeare meant his audiences to be addressed directly and to feel as if the thoughts being spoken, are being spoken immediately and spontaneously to us. His text is dialogue not poetry.
