The Tempest at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

Until

About

Grab the chance to see The Tempest, one of the last plays written by Shakespeare, in the fascinating candlelit setting of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

Follow the adventures of sorcerer Prospero, the exiled Duke of Milan, as he holds sway over an enchanted island and plans his revenge on his brother, who usurped his rule. Assisted by the spirit Ariel and the native Caliban, Prospero conjures up a storm to wreck his brother’s reign and finally sees the opportunity to find justice.

The Tempest brilliantly pulls together references to England’s colonial adventures and a magical world shaped by supernatural forces and human ambition.
