The Tempest POSTER


Shakespeare’s last, and great, play is a triumphant compilation of intrigue, magic, and humour. Prospero, an exiled Duke with supernatural powers, creates a great storm which sees his enemies shipwrecked on his island. Magic abounds, plots are exposed, and a colourful array of characters gain their deserts. Fascinating entertainment.

Details of the tour will be available soon.

Full details of THE TEMPEST Tour 2024 will appear on this site by Easter and we look forward to entertaining you at one of our lovely venues.

We are touring the length and breadth of the land to bring you real and exciting costumed Shakespeare. 6 professional actors travel to you with costumes, props, and scenery in an ageing van. We hope it will hold out a bit longer but desperately need a replacement.
