Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE TEMPEST is a recording of a performance of Shakespeare's play at the Stratford Theatre Festival in Ontario, Canada.

Language

One emphatic use of the word 'piss'. There are also literal uses of the terms 'bastard' and 'bloody'.

Some very mild sex references, with a character stating that a woman "will become thy bed... and bring thee forth brave brood". Natural nudity, with three female characters appearing with one breast visible through their mesh costumes. Very mild threat, with swords drawn, but not used.
