About The Tempest
A storm at sea - a ship is broken by the waves, and a king and his court are washed up on the shore of a mysterious island. The desolate isle appears uninhabited but, unseen in the shadows, a powerful magician plots his revenge.
The fate of all the shipwrecked souls now rests in his hands. Will he give in to his anger, or will his love for his daughter redeem them all?
Taking place across the gardens of St Paul’s Church in the heart of the West End, and inspired by the courtly royal masques of the 17th century and the designs of Inigo Jones, 'The Tempest' is an evening of pomp and promenade, of magic and illusion.
Dress to impress; you’re invited to a party at the end of the world.
The Tempest stars RSC and West End regular Jamie Newall, and is directed by Iris Theatre’s artistic director Daniel Winder, following last year’s five-star production of Macbeth.
