Shakespeare’s final play, is also believed by many to be his finest comedy, presented in Illyria’s slick, physical and imaginative style.
A magician marooned on an island with his daughter conjures up a storm to shipwreck his enemies on the shore of the island. Which is greater – his desire for revenge or his aptitude for forgiveness?
The play, believed to be the last that Shakespeare wrote single-handedly, is lyrical, thought-provoking and raucously funny. More than 400 years after it was written it still has the capacity to surprise!
International award-winning Illyria promise a production to keep you on the edge of your seat!
