    The Tempest tickets

    A magical tale of revenge and redemption

    Set sail to an island inhabited by magic and mischief as Shakespeare’s tumultuous late comedy The Tempest returns to the Globe Theatre this summer.

    When a mighty storm hits, Antonio and his crew are shipwrecked and separated on a seemingly uninhabited island. As the castaways attempt to reunite, banished magician Prospero watches from afar. Antonio is the brother who usurped him and cast him out, and he is determined to get his revenge.

    Shakespeare’s magical play conjures a remarkable story of manipulation, vengeance and redemption, as Prospero orders the islands’ inhabitants - now his servants - to help him exact his personal form of justice.

    The Tempest is one of Shakespeare’s last recorded works as a playwright. It features enthralling monologues and a cast of shapeshifting characters including the spirit Ariel and the enslaved Caliban.

    This new production is thrillingly realised by the Globe Ensemble and directed by Sean Holmes (Shakespeare’s Globe: Twelfth Night; A Midsummer Night’s Dream).

    The wooden ‘o’ is transformed into a tumultuous storm and beautiful but strange island, as Prospero’s vision beckons audiences this summer. Book The Tempest tickets to experience this elemental triumph in the open air of the Globe Theatre.

    Performance dates: 26 Sep 2022 - 22 Oct 2022

    Running time: 2 hours 30 minutes (including an interval)

    Mostly fantastic, clear speaking from many a main character. A couple of the voices were very unclear though. Lots of comedic moments added in, which always helps a Shakespeare play! A great afternoon seeing it.

    Humour is central to this production, so some of the emotional content is lessened, but still excellent fun. A modern beach and plastic take on island life, with plenty of uptodate references to enthral.

    Stuffed with actors who understand Shakespeare this is a little gem. Highest praise goes to George Fouracres as Stefano - utterly brilliant. His comic timing is superb, although Caliban was more mouse than moster.

    Really enjoyable and funny version of the The Tempest - well worth seeing. The players were so good that they started ad libbing with the passing planes - trying to get rescued from the ship wrecked island - brilliant. It was rather a plastic filled set though - would rather baskets than plastic. The trashy food was funny too. All in all they bought out the humour wonderfully.

    A cast full of Globe stalwarts all very accomplished leads to a clear interpretation of The Tempest with well defined characters and some funny moments. All in all great fun and I loved the modern incursions - Harry Potter - the boy that lived and three Lions - very clever and funny.

    Usual fun romp from the Globe, mixing old and new the way they do. Such stuff as dreams are made on. And many no doubt went to sleep to dream of Prospero. (If you've seen this, you know what I mean.)
