One of Shakespeare’s truly original and most personal plays, The Tempest is a symphonic vision of forgiveness, discovery and self-discovery. Famous for its language, context, enchanting characters and breathtaking theatricality, this play represents 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.
Returning after a triumphant season in 2018, this production of The Tempest is deeply engaging and beautifully staged. Don’t miss it.
