Shakespeare Uncovered

The Tempest With Trevor Nunn

Episode Guide »
Trevor Nunn, the legendary director who has directed 30 of Shakespeare's 37 plays and is determined to complete them all before he retires, takes viewers through the magical and mysterious world created in Shakespeare's last complete play. He considers The Tempest Shakespeare's farewell from the stage and relates the play to the playwright's family life. Among the enthusiastic students of the play who contribute ideas about the role of Prospero is the Archbishop of Canterbury, along with Helen Mirren and director Julie Taymor, who collaborated on the most recent film adaptation - with Mirren playing a female Prospera.
