More About "The Tempest"
"The Tempest" is set on a brutal island that is lashed by the sea. One of the main characters of the play is a sorcerer by the name of Prospero, who has found himself stranded on the island with his daughter, Miranda. Struggling to return her to her rightful position, Prospero turns to the use of manipulative behaviour and trickery.
While Prospero tries many routes to achieve his end, his largest act is to let loose a tempest, which triggers a domino effect of events, including the marriage of Miranda.
Filled with some of the most memorable lines in all of Shakespeare, this play is revered for its decidedly neoclassical roots, and it stands out as one the favourite plays among life-long Shakespearean theatre fans across the world.
A true must-see for anyone who already loves or is interested in learning more about Shakespeare, "The Tempest" is a world-class work of theatre that offers a special experience for anyone lucky enough to experience it.
"The Tempest" Experience
As the final act in The Shakespeare Trilogy, spirits at "The Tempest" are high. In this particular performance of "The Tempest", the cast is all female, and the women acting out the various parts of the play put on a passionate, eloquent, and moving performance.
Because of this, it's not uncommon to hear your seat mates gasp, cry out, or laugh openly at pieces of the performance. Audience feedback is common, and people love to get involved in the storyline of "The Tempest".
The venue for this performance is a 420-seat theatre at King's Cross. Efforts to make the theatre more friendly to young people have resulted in a 25 percent decrease in ticket price to patrons age 25 or younger, so there may be an influx of younger viewers who are new to Shakespeare - and to theatre in general.
