The Tempest - 6.00pm Friday 27 August

Event starts: 27 August 2010

Poster for The Tempest

The Festival Players Theatre Company celebrates 25 years of acclaimed professional theatre with an exciting new production of Shakespeare’s final, great poetic comedy, The Tempest. The exiled Duke Prospero conjures a tempestuous storm to lure his enemies to a strange and mysterious island, drawing them through a web of enchantment and illusion as his powers reach their summit: A colourful and fascinating tale for all the family. 

Tickets cost £15 each and are available from the Mansion shop on Open Days, or from Stroud Subscription Rooms (call 01453-760900 to book). The performance begins at 6pm although you are welcome to arrive earlier and, perhaps, bring a picnic.

Note that if the weather is bad, the performance will take place in the Drawing Room.
