Our Review 3 / 5

Inspired by Elizabethan reports of the West Indies in the 16th century and imbued with a spirit of magic and superstition, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s tumultuous play of betrayal, love and forgiveness, at Shakespeare's Globe in 2021.

Set on a remote and mysterious desert island, a banished father must relinquish control and release his daughter in order for her, and for him, to grow, love and understand this brave new world. With enchantments and treachery at every turn, will anyone ever escape?


‘Be not afeard, the isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.

— Act III, scene 2

Our Review of The Tempest - Globe 2021


If you’re feeling anxious about returning to the theatre, Shakespeare’s Globe is really the perfect compromise: outdoors and socially distanced, the only conspicuous difference from the usual configuration, roped-off rows aside, is the presence of seating in the area normally packed with standing groundlings.
