A most bizarre version of Shakespeare--one that's not for all tastes.

A devious and fascinating treatment of the play, especially good for Shakespeare scholars and Jarman fans.

Audience Reviews for The Tempest

An avant-garde adaptation of Shakespeare's fantasy "The Tempest," set almost entirely inside an abandoned English manor. A fascinating production that manages to be true to the Bard's text while adding a number of baroque surprises: Gothic horror atmosphere, bizarre costumes, lots of nudity, hallucination scenes, and even a musical number with a jazz chanteuse singing "Stormy Weather" while a chorus of sailors do a Busby Berkeley dance number.

[font=Century Gothic]"The Tempest" is an atmospheric, if surprisingly, austere version of the William Shakespeare play, directed by Derek Jarman. In it, Prospero(Heathcote Williams), a magician, lives in exile in an ever worsening state of decay with his grown daughter, Miranda(Toyah Willcox). At his disposal is a slave, Caliban(Jack Birkett), and a spirit, Ariel(Karl Johnson). Prospero no longer thinks about returning to his native Milan and simply wants to keep the world at bay, specifically from his daughter. But there are some unwelcome visitors on the horizon...[/font]
