Theatre Breaks for The Tempest in Stratford-upon-Avon are no longer available
This year the Royal Shakespeare Company, in a unique partnership with Intel, will bring a family friendly production of The Tempest to the stage.
Using some of today’s most advanced technology and with award winning actor Simon Russell Beale in the role of Prospero, this re-imagining of Shakespeare’s The Tempest promises to create an unforgettable theatrical experience.
On a distant island a man waits.
Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.
The Tempest will be the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for young theatregoers and families.
The production is directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran.
