The Tempest

By William Shakespeare

In celebration of our 30th birthday, we asked you to choose which of the Bard's 37 plays we are to perform at the end of our 2021 Season. Over 1,800 votes were cast, and our fate has been sealed. Black Swan are thrilled to be staging The Tempest, where it all began for us 30 years ago - at the Octagon Theatre, UWA.

My Friend,

Let us, in truth, be not too proud to say
That you are held in our esteem so dear.
For each success in thirty years to date
Means naught without the presence of you near.
Each rise and fall, each show upon our stage,
Thou’st came, in both the days of sun and sleet.
Thus in reflection of this festive age
May we become a servant at your feet.
And so with this in mind we beg of thee
Instruct us now of that which you desire.
Which of The Bard’s great plays thou wish to see?
And that request shall fuel our artist fire.
Whether thy bidding fatal, famed or fun;
In thy good bidding know thy will be done.

With Love Text Small
