THE PLAY - THE TEMPEST

AT THE ELIZABETHAN PLAYHOUSE

Performed by Illyria as part of Shakespeare's Weekend
3.00pm, Sunday 8 September 2019

The magician Prospero is marooned on an island with his daugher Miranda. With the assistance of a powerful air spirit he keeps in servitude, he conjures up a storm to shipwreck his enemies on the shore of the island.

 

Inexorably they are driven towards the centre of the island to answer to Prospero - until Prospero learns that in spite of everything Miranda has met and fallen in love with Ferdinand, the son of his enemy. Which is the greater - his thirst for revenge or his aptitude for forgiveness?

Now in it's 28th year, Illyria has delighted audiences the length and breadth of the UK, and in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France and the United States and Canada performing some of the most well-loved productions on offer.

The company has won 4 international "Best Performance" awards and attracted numerous '5-star" and 'Critics' Choice" reviews for the lively clarity of its approach to Shakespeare's plays and other performances.
