Synopsis


“We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”


The stranger and his daughter live alone on a remote island.


Some people say he's an artist. Others say he practises magic.


But today is different.


Prospero spots his oldest enemies passing close by in a fragile boat, and he conjures up a storm that will change all of their lives forever.


This production of Shakespeare's final play is loosely inspired by the life of Paul Gauguin on the island of Tahiti.


Michael Pennington, one of the foremost Shakespearean actors of his generation, plays Prospero for the first time.
