The Shitstorm is a hallucinogenic West Kerry riff on Shakespeare’s last play, The Tempest, written by Simon Doyle and directed by Maeve Stone.
Miranda’s been stuck on the island with her dad Prospero for a while now and things have been pretty bad. His threats to give up his magic have always been hollow, until now… He’s run out on her and things have gotten a whole lot worse.
Ariel is out of a job, Caliban is dangerously bored, and Miranda is a teenage girl with no supervision. When the real storm hits she finally starts acting like one.
In this new play, Shakespeare’s characters find themselves in an entirely different context. The Shitstorm is a modern mash-up with some fierce female music and a new girl at the microphone.
A Maeve Stone production.
