The Bridge Presents
The Tempest By William Shakespeare
Directed by Mark Akrill
‘We are such stuff as dreams are made on’
The Bridge’s new time shifting 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.
Beat poet Allen Ginsberg meets outrageous vaudeville comic Max Miller in this extraordinary new version of Shakespeare’s hymn to the imagination.
