Following on from the success of previous English Association and Shakespeare Institute conferences in Stratford: a conference at the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon which includes a ticket to see Anthony Sher and John Kani in The Tempest at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s new Courtyard Theatre.A co-production between the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Baxter Theatre Centre in Cape Town, this unique Tempest, filled with African ritual, music and dance, will feature a totally South African cast and will be created by three of South Africa’s foremost theatrical talents. The director Janice Honeyman (who directed the acclaimed RSC production of Athol Fugard’s Hello and Goodbye in 1988 ) brings two of the country’s most celebrated actors onstage together for the first time, Antony Sher as Prospero and John Kani as Caliban.
