The most enjoyable way to understand a Shakespeare play is to see it or participate in it. This book presents a historical overview of The Tempest in performance, recommends film versions, takes a detailed look at specific productions and includes interviews with directors Peter Brook, Sam Mendes and Rupert Goold, this new edition of the play offers innovative ways of looking at and understanding Shakespeare, so that we may get a sense of the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible - a variety that gives Shakespeare his unique capacity to be reinvented and made 'our contemporary' four centuries after his death.

Ideal for students, theatre-goers, actors and general readers, the RSC Shakespeare editions offer an accessible and contemporary approach to reading and rediscovering Shakespeare's works for the twenty-first century.
