The Tempest, widely considered to be Shakespeare’s last play and a summary comment on his creative endeavours, is a unique blend of magic and realism.  It is a story about a usurped monarch, slavery, love and redemption, and a brave new world of possibilities.  Our production will emphasise the surreal and dreamlike nature of the drama, as well as its earthiness and ambiguity.  We are fortunate enough to have an experienced cast of Shakespeareans, as well as original live music specifically composed for this Bard in the Yard theatrical experience.
