Summer 2013: Staged in five parks across London

The dictator Prospero had relinquished control and finally left the island for good.

The Spirits were celebrating by re-enacting the last moments of Prospero’s reign.

As you journeyed through these green spaces you discovered lovers, kings, monsters and men creating a storm in the undergrowth.

But you had to be careful…as one dictator leaves, another one was never far away…

After the Tempest was a promenade production inspired by Shakespeare’s Tempest performed outside as the sun goes down and in all weathers!
