Theatre Royal Bath's Ustinov Studio has announced the full cast for its upcoming production of William Shakespeare's The Tempest in Bath, England. Artistic Director Deborah Warner's inaugural production will run July 1–August 6.
The cast will feature Dickie Beau as Ariel, Gary Sefton as Stephano, William Chubb as Gonzalo, Stephen Kennedy as Trinculo, Nicholas Woodeson as Prospero, Pierro Niel-Mee as Ferdinand, Edward Hogg as Caliban, Derek Hutchinson as Alonso, Tanvi Virmani as Miranda, Natalie Winsor as Francisca, Finbar Lynch as Antonio, and Luke Mullins as Sebastian.
Set on an isolated island, Shakespeare’s last play follows ousted Duke and magician Prospero, his daughter Miranda, and local characters Caliban and Ariel as Prospero creates a storm that brings enemies from his past to shore.
Joining the creative team are designer Christof Hetzer, lighting designer Jean Kalman, and sound designer Mel Mercier. Mercier began his theatre career with a previous collaboration with Warner, her production with Fiona Shaw of Medea at the Abbey Court in Dublin.
Warner's previous productions of Shakespeare plays includes Julius Caesar at the Barbican, starring Simon Russell Beale and Ralph Fiennes; productions of King Lear, starring Glenda Jackson and Brian Cox; and Richard II, starring Shaw.
