The Tempest at the King's Cross as a part of the unique Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy!

In 2012, Phyllida Lloyd’s all-female production of Julius Caesar placed the play in a women’s prison. It stunned audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and challenged the idea of ‘who owns Shakespeare?’

In 2014, Phyllida reunited with actor Harriet Walter for Henry IV, the second instalment in what was then announced as a trilogy of works from these major artists.

This autumn the project will conclude with The Tempest forming the final part of The Shakespeare Trilogy, as we break free from the Donmar Warehouse to perform in a new 420-seat in-the-round temporary theatre at King’s Cross, immediately adjacent to King’s Cross station and directly accessible from King’s Boulevard.

The Tempest, Henry IV and Julius Caesar will play a 13-week repertory season, from 23 September - 17 December 2016.

It was Fabulous. I don't normally feel very comfortable at the theatre (posh audiences etc) but this restored my faith that it can be inclusive vibrant and relevant. Great policy to have free tickets for a young audience and brilliant that production was collaboration with Clean Break. My daughter and I will be back!

The theatre production was fantastic, as was the acting! Top notch. I was rather dismayed however that I paid £58 per ticket to see this play, only to discover the full price on the ticket was £33! An extra £15 per ticket added on, for what? It was not made clear at any time when purchasing the tickets, so I feel rather annoyed by this! I don't think I will be using the Theatre Direct site again.

“The Tempest”. Kings Cross Theatre. When I found that Prospero's island was a women's prison I thought I was going to be in for a weird evening, and it certainly started out that way. But then I was treated to some seriously good acting and excellent speaking. This is a thoughtful production and I don't think I can ever remember a more powerful or more moving Prospero than Harriet Walter.
