About this Event

A good performance can bring a play to wonderful joyous life. When Shakespeare wrote his great works of art, they were written to be performed and there is no better way to appreciate his works than through a live performance.

The Tempest is a comedy play about magic, betrayal, love and forgiveness. Set on a mysterious island in the middle of nowhere, this is the story of Prospero, a powerful magician who was marooned and left to die on the island. By using his magic, he gathers all his enemies to take revenge on them. He creates a giant storm, or tempest, that sets the scene for the plays shipwreck.

It’s a fantastical tale of magic, a powerful sprite called Ariel, a strange wildman called Caliban, murder, romance, greed but ultimately forgiveness.

Using mainly modern English, this interactive family show fully encourages audience participation and provides a great introduction to the inventiveness and humour of Shakespeare.

Suitable for age 4+

This event is part of the Great Barn Festival. Please see www.greatbarnfestival.co.uk for further details of the festival and all the other ticketed and free activities/events over the weekend.
