The Tempest

15 - 19 June 2010

by William Shakespeare
Envisaged by Faction Theatre Company

Faction Theatre Company returns to the Tabard Theatre and using their trademark visual inventiveness create a magical island the like of which you’ve never seen before…

Stranded on a forgotten isle for the past twelve years, a powerful magician now seeks revenge on the brother who betrayed him. Two courtiers plot to take the life of a king. A jester and a drunken butler lead a deformed slave in rebellion. As the cycle of violence continues, true love blossoms…

Following a critical and box office smash at the Brockley Jack Theatre, The Tempest transfers for one week only at the Tabard Theatre.

‘[The] Faction’s production of The Tempest is highly recommended for its balance of quality, classical acting and its lightness of tone… a pioneering vision’
