Best Bits

Be enchanted by the Tempest this Summer as Iris Theatre take you on an adventure filled with pomp, promenade, of magic and illusion. Taking place across the gardens of St Paul’s Church in the heart of the West End, and inspired by the courtly royal masques of the 17th century and the designs of Inigo Jones, The Tempest promises to bewitch and beguile.

A storm at sea - a ship is broken by the waves, and a king and his court are washed up on the shore of a mysterious island. The desolate isle appears uninhabited but, unseen in the shadows, a powerful magician plots his revenge.

  • You’re invited to a party at the end of the world.
  • A bold and unique retelling of Shakepeare's final solo play
  • From the team behind last year’s five-star production of Macbeth.
  • Perfect for anyone learning about Shakespeare
  • Follow the characters through Covent Garden's Actor's Church's beautiful, rose-filled gardens
  • A stunning outdoor theatre experience for the whole family
