The Tempest:

'The Tempest' is a well-known play by Shakespeare. A story full of adventure, magic and supernatural characters, it explores the universal human values of jealousy, greed, revenge, love and forgiveness.

Our iteration of the play has been directed by renowned film actor and mime artist, Mr. K Paintal. It combines components of experimental theatre with the period drama, and is entirely depicted by dance, music and pantomime. There are no dialogues.

Helen O’Grady’s The Tempest has proven to be a great learning experience for young school and college students, enhance their understanding of Shakespeare in a unique way. Their creativity and imagination is fired through the experience of live theatre, which is mounted on a grand Broadway-style musical.

We have had more than 25 houseful shows in Mumbai at leading venues like St. Andrews, NCPA and Rangsharda, and in a number of cities across India like Chandigarh, Amritsar, Nagpur, Goa, Ooty, Pune and many more. In 2017, we’re putting on shows in Varanasi, Chennai, Delhi and Jaipur.
