Sydney Theatre Company - The Tempest

The Tempest

Presented by Sydney Theatre Company

The iconic Richard Roxburgh returns to the STC stage for the first time in years to play one of theatre's greatest roles in this deeply moving reflection on life, love, and what it means to let go.
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Kip Williams

As a terrible storm blows up and engulfs the sky, a crew of sailors and their entourage are shipwrecked in remote climes. Washing ashore, they discover a lonely island ruled by the powerful and enigmatic sorcerer Prospero (Roxburgh). Along with the island's supernatural inhabitants and his daughter Miranda, Prospero seeks retribution for something that was stolen from him years prior.

Considered by many to be Shakespeare's final play, The Tempest is vast, full of magic and contains all the wit and joy of Shakespeare's best comedies alongside the profound human insight of his tragedies.

STC Artistic Director Kip Williams - known for grand, operatic productions like Chimerica, The Harp in the South: Part One and Part Two and The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui - will direct this great work of art.
Don't miss this magnificent and uplifting meditation on the things that matter most: human connection, the passing of time, and the very nature of existence.
