Caliban's Island Workshop

Shakespeare meets Minecraft with 1623 theatre Company

Public workshop inspired by The Tempest

"This island's mine!"
: Caliban

When Caliban's mother died, he inherited her island. Then Prospero, a magician from the mainland, took over the island and made Caliban his slave.

Now Prospero has returned to his old home and Caliban - set free - needs your help to restore his island to its former glory.

Join other participants to work with Caliban to make a cave his home, build a resting-place for his mother, plant trees and flowers, grow midnight mushrooms, turn barren places into fertile land, transform brine pits into fresh springs and populate the island with wolves, sheep and spirits.

This exciting new workshop brings together the language of Shakespeare and the creativity of Minecraft for a unique team-based experience. You don't have to be a Minecraft or Shakespeare expert to take part.

Tickets £5 per person

Restricted to ages 10 years and over
