Rehearsal images have been released for the Shakespeare’s Globe’s upcoming production of The Tempest, directed by Sean Holmes.

For powerful Prospero’s opening act of revenge, he raises a ferocious storm to shipwreck a crew of men – including his usurping brother – onto the remote island he now rules.

His unwitting cast is now in position and, with reluctant support from the island’s colonised inhabitants, Prospero’s designs of magical and emotional manipulation unfurl with life-changing force.
