The Tempest

May 26, 2017

The Tempest is a play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1610–11, and thought by many critics to be the last play that Shakespeare wrote alone.

‘Not a soul but felt a fever of the mad and played some tricks of desperation. All but mariners plunged in the foaming brine and quit the vessel, then all afire with me. The king’s son, Ferdinand, with hair up-staring – then, like reeds, not hair – was the first man that leaped, cried, ‘Hell is empty and all the devils are here’ – Ariel, Act 1, Scene 2.
