The health and safety of our members and everyone that attends our performances is our prime concern.
Due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation South Bank Playhouse has taken the decision to postpone our production of THE TEMPEST.
Everyone who has booked for a performance will be contacted by email.
We are planning to tun the performances early in the new year, further details will be forthcoming later this year.
Please watch this space and keep in touch.
by William Shakespeare
A ship is caught in a powerful storm, there is terror and confusion on board, and the vessel is shipwrecked. But the storm is a magical creation carried out by the spirit Ariel, and caused by the magic of Prospero, who was the Duke of Milan, before his dukedom was usurped and taken from him by his brother Antonio (aided by Alonso, the King of Naples). That was twelve years ago, when he and his infant child were set adrift on the sea, and eventually stranded on an island. Among those on board the shipwreck are Antonio and Alonso. Prospero plots to reverse what was done to him twelve years ago, and regain his office.
