The Tempest

About

The Palm House is excited to host Illyria is an intrepid band of five actors who perform Shakespeare's plays, entirely uncut, direct from the First Folio, the most authoritative edition of Shakespeare's plays. It's swift, it's polished and it's spoken beautifully and scholars on both sides of the Atlantic agree that Illyria's performance style is the most authentically Elizabethan to be seen.

The magician Prospero is marooned on an island with his daughter Miranda. With the assistance of a powerful air spirit he keeps in servitude, he conjures up a storm to shipwreck his enemies on the shore of the island. Inexorably they are driven towards the centre of the island to answer to Prospero – until Prospero learns that in spite of everything Miranda has met and fallen in love with Ferdinand, the son of his enemy. Which is greater – his thirst for revenge or his aptitude for forgiveness?
