The Tempest

Brought to life in-the-round, through use of puppetry, mask and live folk music.

The Tempest

A fierce storm strikes the sea, and a royal ship bound for Italy is tossed amongst the waves. Prospero and his daughter Miranda watch from their desert island as the ship is wrecked. Prospero admits to his daughter that he orchestrated the storm as an act of revenge on the people on board. Miraculously, everyone survives the shipwreck and they begin to explore this mysterious, magical island ruled by Prospero. Join Tree Folk Theatre Company as they take you through the tempests and into a world of mystical creatures, hideous monsters, witchcraft and wizardry in Shakespeare's most magical play.
Directed by Alice Sillett and brought to life through use of puppetry, mask, physical theatre and live folk music.
