What is it?
Sea-change Theatre present a magical retelling of a most infamous shipwreck, at The Rose Playhouse on Bankside from Thursday 22nd June to Sunday 2nd July.
In this retelling of The Tempest, a single mother and her child are cast adrift on a boat. Banished from her own country, she weaves a spell on a mysterious island. Twelve years later a magical storm brings her lost and bewildered enemies onto the island, where their villainous deeds are exposed. A parallel tale for the times we live in, one of love, deception and rebellion.
In a celebration of the spirit of romance and reconciliation, Sea-change Theatre bring their boldly comic adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic tale to London’s Bankside this summer. A teasing gender-bending production from an all-female cast.
There will be post show discussions on Friday 23rd, Saturday 24th and Wednesday 28th June, and Saturday 1st July.
Visitors to The Rose Playhouse should note that it is an indoor archaeological site, so it’s advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets, the nearest are located at the Shakespeare’s Globe, just a few hundred metres away.
