The Tempest


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

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.
