The Tempest

Audio-described performance Theatre

Audio described in house

The Royal Shakespeare Company in collaboration with Intel presents the Tempest.

Simon Russell Beale plays Prospero in this ground-breaking production directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran.

On a distant island a man waits.

Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will.

When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.

In a unique partnership with Intel, the Royal Shakespeare Company will be using today’s most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s magical play, creating an unforgettable theatrical experience.

The Tempest will be the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for young theatregoers and families.
