The Tempest


"Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises, sounds a sweet aires that give delight."

Amidst storming seas and relentless waves lies the tale of ‘The Tempest’. Within its dream like sequences we are imbued with the spirit of sorcery, intrigue, the quelling of past feuds and the kindling of new loves. Placed within the twisting pipes, rusting rails and windswept decks of an abandoned oil platform floating in a wild ocean, this production delves into the mystery, beauty and comedy in what is widely regarded as one of Shakespeare’s finest works. 

Performed upon a dynamic thrust stage, incorporating elements of physical and ensemble style theatre, the EUSC's production aims to shed new light on this renowned piece.
