Howard Theatre. Downing College
Thu 24 - Sat 26 October
Downing Dramatic Society

The Tempest

William Shakespeare

Tickets for this evening's performance can no longer be booked online but can be bought on the door before the show.

Hell is empty and all the devils are here. A ship is coming. A storm has been conjured, and nothing is what it seems.

This production of The Tempest foregrounds its treatment of abuse and subjugation, with queer and BME actors and creatives re-imagining the story to examine the importance of forgiveness to the stories of Caliban, Miranda, Ariel and Prospero, who each must come to terms with its difficulty.

Join us on the strange isle, where what’s past is prologue…
