Description

Illyria return to The Temple in Wanstead Park to deliver another year of fantastic Open Air Theatre!

In Shakespeare's The Tempest, the magician Prospero is marooned on an island with his daughter Miranda. With the assistance of a powerful air spirit he keeps in servitude, he conjures up a storm to shipwreck his enemies on the shore of the island. Inexorably they are driven towards the centre of the island to answer to Prospero – until Prospero learns that in spite of everything Miranda has met and fallen in love with Ferdinand, the son of his enemy. Which is greater – his thirst for revenge or his aptitude for forgiveness?

In their 28th open-air touring season, and renowned all over the world for their clarity, quality and ingenuity, Illyria return to their home-turf: Shakespearean comedy. The play, believed to be the last that Shakespeare wrote single-handedly, is lyrical, thought-provoking and raucously funny. More than 400 years after it was written it still has the capacity to surprise!

Gates open at 6pm, performance starts at 7pm.

Hot drinks and soft drinks will be available at the Temple. Please bring your own seating or blankets and picnics.

The show will be cancelled in the event of a hurricane only so dress for the weather!

The site may be dark when you leave the show, so please bring a torch to help you find your way.
