The Tempest

The play that has everything: a dramatic shipwreck, a magician plotting revenge, whilst his daughter falls in love with the son of his enemy, two drunken fools and a monster wanting to take over the island – not to mention treachery amongst the courtiers.

Shakespeare weaves all these themes together and adds a magical element with spirits, visions and illusions, leading to a powerful and happy ending. Local children will be playing the supernatural creatures. Great poetry and knockabout comedy, all make this, one of Shakespeare’s last plays, ideal for all the family in our beautiful open-air setting!
