The Tempest

Episode Home | Podcast Home | Episodes

How does theatre make us less alone? What is the role that the audience has to play in the act of art? What does Shakespeare have to teach us about humanity and forgiveness? Declan and Nick join Lucie to discuss The Tempest, a play in which Shakespeare juggles magic, laughter, danger and love with all the flair and freedom of his maturity.

The music in this episode was composed by Paddy Cunneen for The Winter’s Tale (2016-17)
The additional music used in this episode was composed by Dmitry Volkov for The Tempest (2011-14)
