Speaker: Iseult Gillespie

Claps of thunder and flashes of lightning illuminate a swelling sea, as a ship buckles beneath the waves. It is no ordinary storm, but a violent and vengeful tempest, and it sets the stage for Shakespeare's most enigmatic play. Why does this play still resonate with modern readers? Iseult Gillespie investigates. [Directed by Héloïse Dorsan Rachet, narrated by Bethany Cutmore-Scott, music by Jarrett Farkas].
