An exciting new collaborative production under the banner of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
The year is 1962. A revolution is brewing in the back bars and dance halls. The Queen of Naples wields absolute power. The Duke of Milan, Prospero, with his daughter Miranda were banished to a far island, and when his betrayers are shipwrecked he hatches a plot to exact revenge. With intrigue, sexual tension, treason, love and jazz - this is Shakespeare at his best.
In a new approach to Shakespeare's classic, this production will be an abridged version by Bernie Byrnes and will feature a fabulous jazz score, and dance and circus skills.
