Once powerful and respected - then overthrown by Antonio - Prospero is stranded on ‘The Island’, a migrant camp in the year 2020. When a passing ship of politicians and dignitaries - amongst them Antonio - ventures close to The Island, Prospero seizes an opportunity for justice by summoning a fearsome tempest.
Set against a backdrop of mass migration and political corruption, fragments of Verbatim Journalism and striking digital projections punctuate Shakespeare’s original scenes.
This production is a collaboration between Untold Theatre and Yellowbelly Theatre - in recognition of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. There will be collections at each performance in support of Doctors without Borders.
