One may also ask, what time does the tempest end? The Tempest ends with a general sense of resolution and hope.

Then, how long is the average Shakespeare play?
Probably somewhere between two and four hours. The plays vary in length from under 2,000 lines to over 4,000, so there's a good chance that there was considerable variation in the running times. The prologue to Romeo and Juliet describes the story as "the two hours traffic of our stage".
