“Brilliant...they came back with a renewed love for the play.”
Blacktown Girls High School
After a thrilling and captivating run in 2017, Sport For Jove’s exceptional 100 minute production of The Tempest returns to the stage.
One of Shakespeare’s greatest plays, The Tempest is a symphonic vision of forgiveness, discovery and self-discovery. Famous for its language, context, enchanting characters and breathtaking theatricality and a reflection of the world’s most famous playwright at the height of his powers and at the end of his remarkable career.
This tempest is not only in Prospero – the storm lies in the contradictions and ambiguities the story throws up about freedom and slavery, civilisation and barbarism, legacy and letting go, lust and chastity, youth and age, revenge and forgiveness. The sea is a place of transformation but also represents the capriciousness of nature, chaos or fate. The sea is our greatest metaphor for discovery.
