Doctor Prospero – a play for one actor, with musical interludes
by Stephen Davies
This play was originally presented at Salisbury Playhouse, and had a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe.
By interweaving reminiscences of John Dee with scenes from The Tempest and songs of Ariel, it explores the many parallels between Dr Dee and Shakespeare’s Prospero.
Stephen is preparing a new production to be premiered at St Mary’s, with Gareth Armstrong, the original performer, in the part of Dee/Prospero.
