About 'The Tempest'
What is 'The Tempest' about?
Shakespeare's tumultuous play called 'The Tempest' is his most elemental comedy and this production in Shakespeare's Globe Theatre is directed by Sean Holmes, the Associate Artistic Director.
With a ferocious storm raised by Prospero in revenge, a ship is destroyed in order to strand a crew of men on the same remote island which Prospero is currently ruling. Among the crew is also Prospero's usurping brother. The colonised inhabitants of the island do give support to Prospero, but reluctantly. Next comes Prospero's designs of emotional and magical manipulation.
'The Tempest' is said to have been based on a real-life event that was encountered by a voyager. Similarly in this story, the storm made by Prospero washes his enemies ashore on the island, at his mercy. No one dies in the storm. Naturally, the story contains both comedy and tragedy. Alonso, Sebastian, and Antonia are the three sinners. Watch this play to learn which character has visited England.
According to historians, 'The Tempest' was probably written around 1610-1611.
