‘The Tempest’ appears in puppet form at Wilton’s Music Hall

The Isle is Full of Noises channels Shakespeares Tempest using puppetryWe told you back in May about the troubled Wilton’s Music Hall ad we’re happy to report that the beautiful venue is saved and – as a post-refurb production – it brings you Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ in puppet form this Wednesday (7.30pm). A collaboration between Berlin’s Philipp Pleßmann, Franz Ferdinand’s Nicholas McCarthy and set designer Hank Schmidt, ‘The Isle is Full of Noises’ brings characters to life as fantasies, intrepid projections and heartfelt schizophrenic dialogues of a man isolated from mainstream society. The production score fits somewhere between Jesus Christ Superstar and Simon and Garfunkel, except with Shakespearian script perfectly twined within the melody.

For info, see The Isle is Full of Noises: The Tempest listing. Keen for more Shakespeare? Ralph Fiennes is currently in another production of ‘The Tempest’ at Haymarket Theatre Royal.
