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.
Inspired by Elizabethan reports of the West Indies in the 16th Century and imbued with a spirit of magic and superstition, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s tumultuous play of betrayal, love and forgiveness.
Set on a remote and mysterious desert island, a banished father must relinquish control and release his daughter in order for her, and for him, to grow, love and understand this brave new world. With enchantments and treachery at every turn, will anyone ever escape?
‘Be not afeard, the isle is full of noises, Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.’ — Act III, scene 2
