Now you have the opportunity to share that unique magic and spirit of inclusiveness that is – a Globe performance.

Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island.

Imbued with a spirit of magic and the supernatural, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s late great masterpiece of forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment.

Roger Allam won the Olivier Award for best actor for his role as Falstaff in Henry IV parts 1 & 2 at the Globe in 2010. Other recent credits include The Thick of It (BBC) and Tamara Drewe (Film).
