The Tempest

William Shakespeare

5th - 16th February 2019

“O brave new world, that has such people in it.” 

A storm, violent and destructive, reveals an enchanted island ruled by Prospero. In creating this fierce and ferocious tempest she wrecks a passing ship and washes her enemies upon the shore.

When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems. A story of magic, love, revenge and forgiveness.

Shakespeare’s legendary The Tempest hits the stage in this epic new ensemble production and features as the first production in our second year-long residency at The Greenwich Theatre.

The Tempest is produced in association
