The Tempest Tickets

  • “Oh, wonder!
    How many goodly creatures are there here!
    How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
    That has such people in it! ”

    Shakespeare’s final solo play The Tempest opens this year's outdoor summer season at the Iris Theatre at St Paul's Church.

    A storm at sea - a ship is broken by the waves, and a king and his court are washed up on the shore of a mysterious island. The desolate isle appears uninhabited but, unseen in the shadows, a powerful magician plots his revenge.

    The fate of all the shipwrecked souls now rests in his hands. Will he give in to his anger, or will his love for his daughter redeem them all?

    Taking place across the gardens of St Paul’s Church in the heart of Covent Garden, and inspired by the courtly royal masques of the 17th century and the designs of Inigo Jones, The Tempest promises an evening of pomp and promenade, of magic and illusion.

    Directed by Iris Theatre's artistic director Daniel Winder, The Tempest stars West End regular Tony Bell.

    “We are such stuff
    As dreams are made on, and our little life
    Is rounded with a sleep.” 

    Dress to impress; you’re invited to a party at the end of the world!
