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. 

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. 

Get ready to be shaken by Shakespeare’s most elemental comedy, brought to life by our 2022 Globe Ensemble with direction from Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes (A Midsummer Night’s Dream; Twelfth Night, Globe).
 
‘O brave new world,
That has such people in't!’
(Act IV, scene 1)

    Absolutely fantastic performance and effort from the cast. Better than expected, what a great spend of time. Highly recommend

    The actors on stage obviously have the ability to engage an audience and bring meaning to what is being created on stage. The failure of this production along with Henry the eighth lies firmly in the hands of the production team. It is certainly no easy task to get a story across without lights (and therefore it is almost impossible to create a serious change in location and mood etc) . However, that aside, the silly direction given to each story, barbecues, rapper outfits, 1970s Armani suits, blow up flamingos, Speedo’s…All of it is so 🙄 obvious, tongue- in -cheek and disrespectful of the play that was written it was impossible to take any of it seriously. And it was absolutely not even funny. It’s as if the playwrights words just didn’t matter to the Directors. The directors ego mattered to the director and the directors attempt to make a statement of some kind was predominant. Predominant but incredibly weak.

    Surreal and laugh out loud! A really entertaining version of the play, exploring the edge of madness, that sometimes resembled a wild 1970s party. The actors playing Caliban and Prospero were outstanding both in the interpretation of their lines and in their physical comedy. The whole cast were excellent and the interaction with the audience was inspired.
