We are such stuff as dreams are made on.

Review this show


The stranger and his daughter live alone on a remote island. Some people say he’s an artist. Others say he practises magic. But today is different. Prospero spots his oldest enemies passing close by in a fragile boat, and he conjures up a storm that will change all of their lives forever.

The Tempest opened in March 2020 to critical acclaim but was cut short after just six performances. Eighteen months later, it sets sail again with Michael Pennington, one of the foremost Shakespearean actors of his generation, finally donning Prospero’s cloak once more. Artistic Director Tom Littler reunites the original cast for a magical voyage.
