Tue 17 - Sun 22 Jul The Tempest


Shakespeare's mystical final play will be brought to colourful life with fabulous costumes and original music in the RSS 's latest outdoor production on our very own " enchanted isle" of the York House Fountain Garden, Twickenham riverside.

This is a tale of intrigue and romance, magic and mayhem. A man has been cast away on a remote island with his daughter - but this is no ordinary island and Prospero is no ordinary man. He is a magus able to control the very elements. He creates a vast storm shipwrecking his enemies on his fantastical island where nothing is what it seems, but is this for revenge or reconciliation?
