Visit our What's On to see our current and upcoming events.

Get ready for a ‘laugh-a-minute riot of a beach party’ (The Reviews Hub) as Shakespeare’s tale of reckoning and redemption, The Tempest, is ‘brilliantly reimagined’ (Evening Standard) in this ★★★★ ‘super-fun’ (Time Out) production.

For powerful Prospero’s opening act of revenge, he raises a ferocious storm to shipwreck a crew of men – including his usurping brother – onto the remote island he now rules.

His unwitting cast is now in position and, with reluctant support from the island’s colonised inhabitants, Prospero’s designs of magical and emotional manipulation unfurl with life-changing force.

Shakespeare’s most elemental comedy is brought to life by our 2022 Globe Ensemble with direction from Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes (A Midsummer Night’s Dream; Twelfth Night, Globe).

‘O brave new world,
That has such people in’t!’

Act IV, scene 1
