Enjoy one of Shakespeare’s greatest masterpieces at a historic venue with a grand tradition of English Theatre. In the Tempest, we see a magician struggle between weighing his desire for revenge and the love he has for his daughter.

Why Watch The Tempest

The Tempest is is the last play Shakespeare wrote by himself. This rendition, produced by Iris Theatre, a professional theatre company, is associated with St. Paul’s Church, one of London’s oldest churches with ties to the theatre community that dates back to the 1600s. The play is an immersive and interactive play, with the audience being a part of the set. So put on your best Shakespearean outfits and prepare for an evening at the end of the world!

The Story

The Tempest tells the story of the magician Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, and his daughter Ariel. He tries to bring his daughter what is rightfully hers, even if he uses ill-means to do so. He shipwrecks his usurpers and forces them to reveal their treachery and lowly natures. What follows is his internal struggle, as he is forced to choose between vengeance and the love for his daughter.
