THE TEMPEST – Shakespeare’s Globe

In London theatre, Opinion, Plays, Reviews by Libby PurvesLeave a Comment

For a departing artistic director, especially here, Shakespeare’s last plays are a natural choice: great poetic anthems of reconciliation and renunciation. Hence this winter Cymbeline, Pericles, The Winter’s Tale and now The Tempest, with the poet’s strange final moment of burying the book, abjuring rough magic, abdicating. Dominic Dromgoole, after eleven adventurous, globe-circling years here, is the first to stage a farewell in winter, in the little candlelit Wanamaker playhouse completed so beautifully on his watch.
