Hotel Direct are offering London theatre breaks to see Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ at the Haymarket Theatre Royale in the West End.

The play is running from the 27th of August to the 29th of October 2011 and sees the acclaimed actor Ralph Fiennes take on the role of Prospero. Joining Feiennes are Nicholas Lyndhurst as Trinculo, Clive Wood as Stephano and Elisabeth Hopper as Miranda.

The Tempest will be directed by Trevor Nunn, the third production of his season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Said to be Shakespeare’s last play, ‘The Tempest’ tells the story of Prospero and how he is kicked out of his dukedom by his brother Antonio and cast to sea with his daughter. He lands upon an island where he creates a home for them using magical powers granted by books smuggled by his councillor Gonzalo. Prospero creates a mighty storm that crashes a ship on the island that his brother and the rest of the conspirators were sailing on. Prospero then looks to get revenge upon those that wronged him.

The Tempest was recently adapted for the big screen in 2010 in the Julie Taymor direct film that starred Helen Mirren as a Prospera, a female version of the lead character. Alan Cumming, Russell Brand and Djimon Hounsou also starred.
