The Tempest

The Lord Chamberlain’s Men return to Caernarfon Castle this summer performing Shakespeare’s spellbinding masterpiece - The Tempest.

 

12 years ago, Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his brother washes up on a distant and mystical island with his baby daughter, Miranda. A place where his magical powers reign supreme and the only inhabitants of the island, the sprite Ariel and brutish Caliban, answer his every command. In this strange new kingdom, he is left to brood.

 

Now his enemies, his brother Antonio, who supplanted him as Duke, and Alonso, King of Naples, whilst sailing home are blown, by fortune, off course towards him. Prospero raises a tempestuous storm that shipwrecks them. Scattered across the island the boat’s passengers are tested and tormented as they are magically drawn towards their fate. Left to plot his revenge for years Prospero finally has the chance to exact it. But will he?

 

This play of soaring poetry, high comedy and tender love, Shakespeare’s late, great gem, examines the power of true love, our capacity for vengeance and what it takes to forgive….

 

Bring a chair/blanket and a picnic - and spend a glorious summer’s evening watching this enchanting, fast-paced production of one of Shakespeare’s finest plays in one of the most beautiful castles in the world!
