A truly unique retelling of Shakespeare’s most magical story, directed by Josette Bushell-Mingo, former Artistic Director of Tyst Teater, Sweden’s National Deaf Theatre, from 2005-2018. The Tempest will feature Deaf and hearing actors onstage together.
In Shakespeare’s fantastic tale of loss and reconciliation, a deposed ruler uses his magic to seek vengeance on those who robbed him of his throne and marooned him on a remote island. But what shape will his revenge take?
