The Tempest

Date: 20TH JUNE - 28TH JULY

Award-winning Iris Theatre’s summer season will present a unique theatrical promenade experience in the middle of Covent Garden - Shakespeare’s The Tempest opens this year’s enchanting outdoor season. Inspired by the courtly royal masques of the 17th century and the designs of Inigo Jones (the architect behind St Paul’s Church), The Tempest will present an evening of pomp, magic and illusion. Directed by Iris Theatre’s Artistic Director Daniel Winder, this bold production stars Propellor and West End regular Tony Bell.  As St Paul’s Church transforms into a mysterious island, audiences are led on an exciting indoor and outdoor promenade adventure - dress to impress as you are about to join a party at the end of the world!

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?

Performances are at 2:30pm and 7:30pm, please see the website for the exact performance schedule.
