Overview

“My nature is subdued
To what it works in, like the dyer’s hand…”

He’s quoted to advertise laptops and holidays. We talk his language whether we want to or not. But William Shakespeare was a genius who minded his own business: a private man of whom we know little. In a rare return of his internationally acclaimed one-man show, Michael Pennington inhabits a host of characters, and shares a lifetime’s experience of Shakespeare’s words and drama.

Michael Pennington is one of the leading classical actors of his generation, whose much-anticipated performance as Prospero in The Tempest was curtailed in March 2020. Now he returns to Jermyn Street Theatre – and to Shakespeare.
