“Be not afeared; the isle is full of noises”
Caliban – Act III Scene II 

Sea-change Theatre present a magical retelling of a most infamous shipwreck, within the haunting setting of The Rose Playhouse on Bankside. 
A single mother and her child are cast adrift on a boat, banished from her own country, she weaves a spell on a mysterious island. Twelve years later a magical storm brings her lost and bewildered enemies onto the island, where their villainous deeds are exposed. A parallel tale for the times we live in, one of love, deception and rebellion. 
A teasing, gender-bending feast for the senses from the all-female cast, with Baroque-burlesque disco, Sea-shanties and Calypso. In a celebration of the spirit of romance and reconciliation, Sea-change Theatre bring their boldly comic adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic tale to London’s Bankside this summer.

The Rose Playhouse, Bankside’s first theatre, 1587. 
The Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use those at Shakespeare’s Globe just a few hundred meters away.
