Join us on a journey as the magical mystical world of Shakespeare merges with the marvellous mechanical world of Steampunk in Stagecraft’s production of The Tempest.   

Unsure what “Steampunk” is, go to

Come watch the how the cast and crew have re-interpreted some of Shakespeare’s most famous characters into the futuristic Victorian Steampunk setting. Marvel as the original text takes on new meaning in this glorious setting. With spectacular special effects and Shakespeare’s gift of the gab it doesn’t matter if you are a Shakespeare fan, a Steampunk enthusiast, a theatre lover or just a curious bystander we guarantee that you will be swept away as this two hour journey takes you through the intertwining story of one woman’s revenge and the lives of the people around her.

“A pox o’ your throat, you bawling, blasphemous, incharitable dog!”

“Now I will believe that there are unicorns...”

“Hang, cur, hang, you whoreson, insolent noisemaker!”

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”
