About the Play

Betrayal, revenge, magic and romance intertwine in one of Shakespeare's best-loved works. 


Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, has been shipwrecked on an island along with his infant daughter, Miranda. With only spirits and creatures of the island for company, they have made a life for themselves amongst the magic and simplicity of their surroundings. However, when a ship passing by the island is wrecked during a spectacular and mystical storm, Prospero leaps on the opportunity to settle old scores and uses his magic to weave a web of intrigue, chaos, vengeance and hilarity, in a story that will delight and entertain audiences both young and old alike. 


Don't miss the opportunity to see this truly unique staging of Shakespeare's classic masterpiece in one of Worcester's most spectacular venues.


The Tempest is one of Shakespeare's best loved works and it's easy to see why schools have made it a staple of the curriculum for both English and Drama based subjects.
