Company C´s production, developed over 12 months against the backdrop of unprecedented global population displacement. As untold thousands of people seeking sanctuary are left to perish, there has never been a more
relevant time to rediscover the telling of Shakespeare´s most magical and human story of loss, revenge, transformation, reconciliation and resolution.

A man betrayed by those closest to him, abandoned to the sea with his young daughter, to die. His hope sustained only by his love for her. They arrive upon a strange land and for twelve years create a new life for themselves
until, one day a ship sails close-by their island...

Venture through the heart of the tempest to Prospero´s Isle to discover a place of transformation and, perhaps, redemption.

Ticket price - £16.00/£8.00 online and £20.00/£16.00 on the door
