"We are such stuff as dreams are made on..."
Sunday 11th August 2024
Step into Tresco Abbey Garden for the evening and enter the enchanting world of Shakespeare's The Tempest, where magic, betrayal, and revenge weave a spellbinding tale.
Imagine being stranded on a remote island with the exiled Duke of Milan, Prospero, and his daughter Miranda for twelve years. This is the backdrop for one of Shakespeare's most captivating plays, exploring themes of power, love, and forgiveness through a cast of unforgettable characters.
Centuries after its creation, The Tempest is still captivating audiences. Shakespeare’s last, and great, play is a triumphant compilation of intrigue, magic, and humour - an excellent introduction to Shakespeare's works for newcomers.
Magic abounds, plots are exposed, and a colourful array of characters gain their deserts. Fascinating entertainment.
Tickets will be available online, in the Island Office one week before the show and on the door.
