In his last play, Shakespeare reflects on the power of theatre and the magic of performance. Prospero’s island provides the stage for a tempest of words and theatrical inventions as actors and audience immerse themselves in a storm of love and conflicts, witty wordplay and philosophical musings.
Following the success of their adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s BRAVE NEW WORLD, Pan Pan now work with Theater Bonn’s ensemble on the play which inspired Huxley’s dystopia.
Pan Pan Theatre and Theater Bonn would like to acknowledge Culture Ireland’s support.
Dates: 2 March – 16 June 2017

Pan Pan are delighted to continue our relationship with our Associate Director, Dick Walsh, who returns with his hit Dublin Fringe Festival 2016 show!
Topical talk-shows are spontaneous speech-acts (kind of). Repeat them verbatim in a theatre and you see that they are theatre.
Energy, death, the truth, surfing, speedos, sex, history, politics and the meaning of life – everything you could want is touched upon.
Sophisticated and very effective, it’s a form of theatre that Shakespeare could never have dreamed of, nor even Bertolt Brecht…
