WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Donmar Warehouse returns to St. Ann's with The Tempest, the third and final installment of director Phyllida Lloyd's all-female Shakespeare trilogy. Set in a women's prison, The Tempest follows Lloyd's productions of Julius Caesar and Henry IV, and will once again be led by the renowned Harriet Walter.
St. Ann's has been the proud American home of the revelatory trilogy that has ignited a cultural and social conversation about gender, equality, and aspiration on both sides of the Atlantic, as it empowers women to play the great Shakespearean roles normally reserved for men. The Tempest comes with a comprehensive education program for underserved youth in New York City public schools and young women touched by the juvenile justice system.
