An unmissable experience
Back by popular demand after last year's 42 date national tour and sell-out run at London's Roundhouse...
I'm making a decision. I'm changing things. This is it.
Three old friends. One remarkable day. For Ted, Danny and Charlotte, it’s time to seize control. Make a difference. Change things. This is it.
A day glo trip through the parks and raves and cafes of South London, where life is what you make it. The rapid fire words of Kate Tempest paint a picture of lives less ordinary in an unforgiving world, sound-tracked by an exhilarating score.
A play about life, love and losing your mind.
“Performances are tight, punchy and second to none… the energy, the originality, the humour and the insightful observations make it an unmissable experience.”
Will Stone, Whatsonstage ★★★★
“There’s a pulsing energy to performances and production… Tempest provides a welcome shot in drama’s arm.”
Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard ★★★★
“A slender, wistful three-way play that’s as seductive as smoke.”
Caroline McGinn, Time Out ★★★★
“An ingenious whole that’s funny and true…dynamic poetry that’s full of vividly phrased acute observation…spot-on.”
Elisabeth Mahoney, The Guardian ★★★★
