Following their recent popular summer tours of A Midsummer Night's Dream and Twelfth Night, RoughCast return to Shakespeare with a typically fast-moving and energetic production of the most magical of his comedies. Magic, betrayal, love and forgiveness with a healthy dose of comedy thrown in for good measure, make The Tempest one of his best-loved plays.
Marooned on a Mediterranean island, Prospero, the one-time Duke of Milan, uses his magical powers to shipwreck his enemies, avenge his wrongs and reclaim his title from his treacherous brother. Not only that, he has to cope with rebellious spirits and drunken servants as well as arrange the marriage of his beloved daughter Miranda.
With a production rehearsed and performed in Covid secure conditions RoughCast invites you back to live theatre on a balmy summer evening once more: "Oh brave new world!"
This will be an outdoor performance, weather permitting. Please bring something to sit on.
