The Bell Shakespeare Company - The Tempest

“This thing of darkness
I acknowledge mine”

Batten down the hatches. Here comes The Tempest.

John Bell is Prospero, a philosopher, magician and manipulator, whose world of the mind achieves physical form on a lush tropical island. See the master illusionist cook up an electrifying storm of steamy disturbance, transforming his private Utopia into a crucible of power politics and dreaded hierarchies.

Venture into the unknown with The Tempest, staged in the vivid, sensual style of director Peter Evans. A frenetic dance of wild obsessions, delirium and hilarity, The Tempest burns with revenge – and glows with the gracious light of forgiveness.
