London, 1936 the threat of fascism grows day by day.

Shylock (Tracy-Ann Oberman - Eastenders, Doctor Who, Friday Night Dinner) a widow, single mother and survivor of attacks on Jewish people in Russia, runs a small business from her home in Cable Street.

Oswald Mosley and the British Union of Fascists plan a march through the Jewish East End and a fragile peace is shattered.

Into Shylock’s world enters antisemitic Antonio in need of a loan, a dangerous deal is made. Will Shylock take her revenge?

A powerful reminder of a key moment in British history.

‘If you prick us do we not bleed? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?’
