The Tempest

Author(s): William Shakespeare
Company: Guildford Shakespeare Company
Running time: 2h 30min approx

“The isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.”

On a remote island, a mother and daughter watch as a ship is wrecked on the shore; but this is no accident, and this is no ordinary island. As the survivors come to discover, magic does exist and those we think are lost forever are really just waiting to be found.

Shipwrecks, sorcerers and surprises, Shakespeare’s final play is an enthralling voyage of reckoning and redemption.

For GSC's 50th production, Guildford’s largest and most popular green space, Stoke Park, will be transformed as audiences are moved around the ‘island’ in a promenade production, with the company's HQ building converted into the wrecked remains of huge ship.

Caroline Devlin returns to direct.
