Nicholas Woodeson & Dickie Beau

Full cast announced for The Tempest at Theatre Royal Bath starring Nicholas Woodeson

Casting is announced for Theatre Royal Bath’s Ustinov Studio production of The Tempest, directed by Deborah Warner.

Nicholas Woodeson (The Mirror and the Light, Death of a Salesman, The Audience) will play Prospero, the powerful wizard and former Duke of Milan .

Dickie Beau (Bohemian Rhapsody) will play Ariel, Gary Sefton (RSC’s Beauty and the Beast, Julius Caesar) will play Stephano, William Chubb (King Lear) will play Gonzalo, Stephen Kennedy (The Archers, The Birthday Party)will play Trinculo, Pierro Niel-Mee(Imperium: Parts 1 & 2) will play Ferdinand, Edward Hogg (Taboo) will play Caliban, Derek Hutchinson (Amadeus) will play Alonso, Tanvi Virmani (Romeo and Juliet) will play Miranda, Natalie Winsor (Dirty Dancing, Fame) will play Francisca, Finbar Lynch (The Fairy Queen) will play Antonio, and Luke Mullins (Waiting For Godot, The Maids) will play Sebastian.

Set on an enchanted island Shakespeare’s last play deals with magic, love, treachery, transformations, transmutations, the visible and the invisible. In Caliban, Ariel, and of course Prospero, Shakespeare created three of his most memorable and enigmatic characters. As with all his ‘late plays’, man’s complex and troubled journey from the desire for revenge to the path of mercy is centre stage. When Prospero takes his enemies hostage, the path is set for a traditional revenge drama, but instead ends in redemption, restoration and renewal.

The Tempest, by William Shakespeare, is the first production in Deborah Warner’s inaugural season as Artistic Director of the Ustinov Studio in Bath.

The Tempest runs from 1 July 2022 until 6 August 2022 at the Ustinov Studio, Theatre Royal Bath.
