Doctor Prospero: the rough magic of John Dee
by Stephen Davies
This play for one actor, with musical interludes, interweaves 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.
Doctor Prospero was originally presented at Salisbury Playhouse, and had a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe with 5-star reviews. ‘Impressively researched and beautifully written’, ‘Armstrong’s mesmerising performance illuminates one of the most complex characters of Renaissance England with clarity and sympathy, truly bringing history to life’.
Stephen has prepared a new production to be premiered at St Mary’s, with Gareth Armstrong, the original performer, in the part of Dee/Prospero. The production will then go on a national tour.
