Synopsis


Sea-change Theatre present a magical retelling of a most infamous shipwreck, within the haunting setting of The Rose Playhouse on Bankside.


A single mother and her child are cast adrift on a boat, banished from her own country, she weaves a spell on a mysterious island.


Twelve years later a magical storm brings her lost and bewildered enemies onto the island, where their villainous deeds are exposed.


A parallel tale for the times we live in, one of love, deception and rebellion.


A teasing, gender-bending feast for the senses from the all-female cast, with Baroque-burlesque disco, Sea-shanties and Calypso.


In a celebration of the spirit of romance and reconciliation, Sea-change Theatre bring their boldly comic adaptation of Shakespeare's classic tale to London's Bankside this summer.
