About The Tempest | Globe

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?

#TheTempest

‘Be not afeard, the isle is full of noises, Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.’ — Act III, scene 2

What to Watch For:

  • Sean Holmes directs The Tempest London play. His previous directorial tenure was at Lyric Hammersmith. While at Lyric Hammersmith, Holmes helmed A Midsummer Night’s Dream which eventually toured nationwide.
  • Where did ideas for The Tempest come from? We can’t speak to Shakespeare directly, but previous records indicate Shakespeare’s thoughts. It’s believed The Tempest came from records of sea voyages that were hit by hurricanes.
  • Shakespeare’s Globe celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2022. The theatre is built in honour of the original Elizabethan style.
  • The Globe ensemble star in The Tempest. The Globe Ensemble are in a number of Shakespeare’s Globe productions, including Much Ado About Nothing.
