The Tempest Returns | Sport for Jove

One of Shakespeare’s truly original and most personal plays, The Tempest is a symphonic vision of forgiveness, discovery and self-discovery – famous for its language, context, enchanting characters and breathtaking theatricality, this is a reflection of the world’s most famous playwright at the height of his powers and at the end of his remarkable career.

This tempest is not only in Prospero – the storm lies in the contradictions and ambiguities the story throws up about freedom and slavery, civilisation and barbarism, legacy and letting go, lust and chastity, youth and age, revenge and forgiveness. The sea is a place of transformation but also represents the capriciousness of nature, chaos or fate.

This 100-minute production of The Tempest compresses the action of the play while retaining the joy and magic. Now in it’s third season, this production from Artistic Director Damien Ryan will delight students and adults alike.
