In the New Year Theatre at the Mill will have a special treat for Shakespeare fans.
The venue will be screening The Tempest live from the Royal Shakespeare Company on Wednesday January 11, 2017.
On a distant island a man waits. Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island.
Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will.
When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him.
Creating a vast magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore.
When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.
Simon Russell Beale returns to the RSC after 20 years to play Prospero in this ground-breaking production directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran.
In a unique partnership with Intel, the production will be using today’s most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s magical play, creating an unforgettable theatrical experience.
This is a live screening from The Royal Shakespeare Company and the show begins at 7pm.
Tickets, priced £12 and £10 (concession) are on sale now from the Theatre at the Mill Box Office on 028 9034 0202 or online theatreatthemill.com.
