A shipwreck causes the fusion of two worlds and cultures in this darkly comic Shakespearean gem. Dig into the sand and what lies beneath? A remarkably observed study on Magical Realism, the soul and even theatre itself. Enjoying new found relevance in light of contemporary fiction (including Margaret Atwood’s ‘Hag-Seed’), THE TEMPEST, while often passed off as just another comedy, is, under those crashing waves, so much more.
WHY THEY’LL ♥ IT
THE TEMPEST is pure magic and gives students so much more than laughter. A modern soundtrack, contemporary AV design, The Bard’s rich language – all set on Shakespeare’s version of ‘Survivor’.
WHY YOU’LL ♥ IT
Because it allows students to see the characters and words come to life in a bold 50 min adaptation of the play, offering a clear understanding of the key players on the island.
