Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA presents

The Tempest

by William Shakespeare

Octagon Theatre
20 Nov to 11 Dec

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. We are thrilled to announce Black Swan will stage The Tempest, where it all began for us 30 years ago - the Octagon Theatre.

This open-door endeavour invites you not only to help them lift the curtain but immerse yourself behind it for the full journey of a production.
