The Tempest

By William Shakespeare

17-19, 23-26 October 2019 at 7.30pm

Matinée 26 October at 2.30pm

“Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises”

On a deserted island lives Prospero, exiled after his brother stole his dukedom from him. In our modern interpretation of Shakespeare’s great play, this is no tropical paradise but ratheran island destroyed and abandoned after nuclear tests.

When this deceitful brother and his entourage sail close by, Prospero uses his magical powers to create a tempest. In the ensuing shipwreck, they are flung on to the island, bringing with them grief and greed, farce and folly, revelations and revenge but, ultimately, love and letting go.
