The Tempest Tickets

Iris Theatre - St. Paul's Church
Bedford St, London WC2E 9ED

  • Running Time: TBC
  • Booking Until: Sat, 28 July 2018
Shakespeare’s final solo play The Tempest is this year’s enchanting opening to Iris Theatre’s outdoor summer season. 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 the West End, and inspired by the courtly royal masques of the 17th century and the designs of Inigo Jones, The Tempest is an evening of pomp and promenade, of magic and illusion.

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

The Tempest stars Propeller and West End regular Tony Bell, and is directed by Iris Theatre’s artistic director Daniel Winder, following last year’s five-star production of Macbeth.


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


Recommended for ages 8+, though some scenes may be upsetting for very small children.
