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 reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he 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.

In a unique partnership with Intel, the RSC will be using today’s most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s magical play.

Barbican [Off West End]

“Fears that the technology would upstage the actors are firmly scotched by the presence of Beale as Prospero.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Trippy, albeit ultimately gimmicky, graphics... Quartley makes the softly spoken airy spirit both elusive and enticing.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)
