The intimate, candlelit, indoor Sam Wanamaker Playhouse is transformed into an enchanted island where Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother considers his fortunes. He is comforted by his daughter Miranda and served by the spirit Ariel and by Caliban, a ‘savage and deformed slave’. When Prospero raises a storm to wreck this brother and his confederates on the island, his long contemplated revenge at last seems within reach.
Inspired by English colonial adventures and brilliantly conjuring up a magic and supernatural world, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s late masterpiece of forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment.
This production is Dominic Dromgoole, designed by Jonathan Fensom and choreographed by Sian Williams
