‘We are such stuff as dreams are made on’
The Bridge’s new timeshifting production of The Tempest mixes the Elizabethan world with the 1950s painter’s studio that is Prospero’s desert island. Betrayed by family and peers and racing against time to complete a masterwork, Prospero must choose between revenge and justice, violent retribution and forgiveness.
An extraordinary re-imagining of Shakespeare’s hymn to the imagination.
