The Tempest 2011 - 2014

Tour Information

There is something very modern about this character who is desperately learning to forgive.

Prospero is learning how to deal with the fact that reality is not how he would like it to be; and he has lived in a very controlled universe and he is trying to break free of that.

He has got to sort out the relationship with his daughter, his relationship with his environment and his relationship with himself.

He must learn how to forgive, and the play is about someone screaming noisily trying to learn how to forgive and leaving the world of revenge behind him. It’s a very anarchic play.

-Declan Donnellan, Artistic Director, on The Tempest


We are such stuff / As dreams are made on: and our little life / Is rounded with a sleep
