The Tempest by William Shakespeare

Event info

Start Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: £13.50 Concessions: £11.00


"a reminder of the theatrical gem in our midst" - The Chronicle

Marooned on a remote island, Prospero, the usurped Duke of Milan, lives with his pretty young daughter Miranda and their two servants: the flighty spirit Ariel, and the downtrodden witchspawned drudge Caliban. Prospero uses his magic powers to conjure up a storm, shipwrecking his wicked brother and his court on the island, placing them at his mercy.

But Shakespeare’s classic is no simple tale of revenge. Romance and reconciliation win the day, with much roistering high-jinks, melodramatic sorcery, and knockabout comic interludes along the way in what is famously the most musical of the Bard’s dramas.

"an interesting and intriguing interpretation with much humour ... backed up with beautifully performed music" - Break A Leg
