Unseam'd Shakespeare Company - The Tempest, or The Enchanted Isle
This is not Shakespeare's play. Our production of The Tempest, or The Enchanted Isle will take Scott Palmer’s rich and strange adaptation of John Dryden and William D’Avenant’s version of Shakespeare’s classic as a starting point, fully exploring it in setting, costume, and style. We may not threaten to overtake Shakespeare's poetic reputation, but will almost certainly do it no harm. Dryden and Davenant’s adaptation of the play held the stage for nearly two hundred years, and we hope that our production may cast a light not only the morals and manners of the time, (and perhaps some resonances for our own) but on the play's long-standing popularity. This is not Shakespeare's play. Come and see why Dryden and D'Avenant's re-telling of Shakespeare's classic held the stage for over 200 years.
