Heavy storms with a chance of mayhem

A storm is about to descend on Upper Street…brave the elements and witness a company of four actors romping through this magical comedy. This fresh adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic stays entirely faithful to the original text, whilst offering a riotous departure from the norm.

Thick as Thieves was founded by Nicky Diss and Thomas Judd. Between them they have clocked up thousands of miles travelling round the UK performing in open-air Shakespeare productions. The Tempest will sweep into Islington accompanied by some of outdoor theatre’s finest elements: relentless energy, breakneck costume changes, real foliage…and the best part is, you won’t need your umbrella.
