The Tempest

The Tempest Tickets London

The RSC's ground-breaking new production of Shakespeare's classic play The Tempest transfers to the Barbican in London for a limited seven week run this summer starring Simon Russell Beale as Prospero and directed by Gregory Doran.

On a far and distant island a man waits.

Having been robbed of his power, wealth and position, his enemies have left him in complete isolation, however this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, and therefore able to understand and control the elements enabling him to bend nature to his will.

As a sail appears in the distance on the horizon, Prospero reaches out to the ship that carries the very men who wronged him and creates a vast magical storm which wrecks the ship and washes all his enemies up on the shore of a fantastical island where nothing is at all as it seems.
