The Swan Theatre Company presents

The Tempest

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Ian White

Monday 17th - Saturday 22th September 2018

Show starts at 7:45 pm

On a distant island a man waits.

Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon he creates a vast magical storm that wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.
