Simon Russell Beale returns to the Royal Shakespeare Company after 20 years to play Prospero in this groundbreaking production directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran.

On a distant island a man waits. Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.

The Tempest opened in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in November 2016. The Live from Stratford-upon-Avon cinema broadcast offers audiences a unique chance to see this ground-breaking adaptation.  In a unique partnership with Intel, the production will be using today’s most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s magical play, creating an unforgettable theatrical experience.

Join us at the Hipp Cinema to celebrate the 20th anniversary of PRINCESS MONONOKE with a theatrical re-release for the anime classic beginning March 3rd.

While defending his village from a demonic boar-god, the young warrior Ashitaka becomes afflicted with a curse that grants him super-human power in battle but will eventually take his life. Traveling west to find a cure or meet his destiny, he journeys deep into sacred depths of the Great Forest where he meets San (Princess Mononoke), a girl raised by wolf-gods who is waging battle against the human outpost of Iron Town, on the edge of the forest. The girl Mononoke is a force of nature – with blood smeared lips, riding bareback on a great white wolf, doing battle with both gods and humans, she is as iconic a figure as any from film, literature, or opera.

“Twenty years after its release, ‘Princess Mononoke’ remains an undisputed animated triumph and one of the most thrilling adventures ever produced.”
-GKIDS’ President Eric Beckman

My Little Sister is a slice of life in the story of Anita and Nena, sisters that still live together at the tender age of 85 and 82 years old. It is told in three scenes and one epilogue; when Anita, 85, has spent eight long years being a caregiver to her younger sister, Nena, 82, after she suffered a mild stroke. We are witnessed to their daily routine, which is both pathetically funny and touching as their conflicts come to the fore with semi-tragic consequences.

Carlos Francisco Asse author of the piece also takes the reins as its director with the help of Carolyn Caracausa and Jan Cohen creating the roles of Anita and Nena, respectively. Lighting by Robert P. Robins; costumes by Marilyn Wall; properties by Lorelei Esser; sound by Essa Solrac; and stage management by Sabrina Jones.
