The Tempest

The Tempest

fall production 2016

The Tempest follows the castaways of a magical storm and their adventures on Prospero’s island. Greedy royalty, debaucherous clowns, resentful and confused natives all attempt to navigate a world controlled by the powerful sorcerer, Prospero, and his internet-savvy slave, Ariel.

At a time when the world appears most tempestuous and unsettled, this play offers insight into the powerplays and relationships which are still recognisable in the world today. Filled with danger, comedy and magic, this staging of the original folio version in a modern setting promises to bring nuance and clarity to Shakespeare’s final masterpiece.
