Overview

‘O brave new world, That has such people in’t!’ - Act IV, scene 1

For powerful Prospero’s opening act of revenge, he raises a ferocious storm to shipwreck a crew of men – including his usurping brother – onto the remote island he now rules. His unwitting cast is now in position and, with reluctant support from the island’s colonised inhabitants, Prospero’s designs of magical and emotional manipulation unfurl with life-changing force.

The stage is set for a tumultuous new production of The Tempest, Shakespeare’s tale of reckoning and redemption, this summer in the Globe Theatre. Brought to life by our 2022 Globe Ensemble with direction from Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes (A Midsummer Night’s Dream; Twelfth Night, Globe).
