Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made On
An immersive adventure through Shakespeare's final play
Adapted from William Shakespeare's The Tempest by Sarah Heenan

12-23 April 2016


Be not afear'd, the isle is full of noises…

The Docklands Shakespeare Society has invited respected Shakespeare historian Dr. Bianca Corbin to speak at an evening of recitation, interpretive dance and song by the enthusiastic members of The City of London's premier amateur theatre company, Sedos.

Four hundred years after William Shakespeare's death, his final play, The Tempest, and the Bard himself both come to life on a lost and forgotten island… only, not quite in the way he remembers writing it…

The two events collide on one unforgettable April evening.

Sedos' first immersive theatre production takes 15,000 sq ft of a building in London's Docklands and brings the world of The Tempest to life in a celebration of Shakespeare's life and works. Audiences will be able to explore the island unguided, hear its sweet and sinister noises, sit in Prospero's armchair, drink with Stephano and Trinculo and follow the spirits of the island as they torment and entertain the island's mysterious inhabitants.
