Come hither spirits, will you brave the elements?

A bold, contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, performed across Trebah’s sub-tropical garden. Incensed skies cause a catastrophic disaster on the beach of a magical island.

Shoulder-padded passengers scatter as your new leader stands tall atop a cliff.

“Dost thou attend me?”

Venture through an island full of noises in this radical adaptation of a 400-year-old story and decide for yourself, who really holds the power?
