The Tempest

About The Tempest

One of the last plays that Shakespeare wrote and undoubtedly one of his most outstanding works, The Tempest – at once dreamlike, surreal, magical, romantic and cruel – will be Tron Theatre Company’s first piece of work on the main stage in the re-opening season.

Working with a cast of eleven Scottish-based female/female identifying actors, this movement-based version of The Tempest, being staged during the COP26 summit, capitalises on the extraordinary atmosphere of the Tron’s stripped-back main auditorium. In a play about the exploitation of male power and greed and the colonisation of other lands and their indigenous inhabitants, the exclusively female voice subverts the interpretation, bringing a new energy and nuance to the language.

Opening with a shipwreck and ending with the powerful and vindictive Prospero abandoning the island he has ruled over for some twelve years – ‘At this hour/Lie at my mercy all mine enemies’ – there is enchantment and treachery, comedy and tragedy in this fantastical tale where absolutely nothing is as it seems.

Cast: Nicole Cooper, Catriona Faint, Taylor Goodwin, Liz Kettle, Megan McGuire, Ariana Ferris McLean, Itxaso Moreno, Katya Morrison, Titana Muthui, Ninon Noiret, Elle Watson.
