The Tempest

“Be not afeard, the isle is full of noises...”

Likely the Bard’s final piece that he penned alone, The Tempest sets the stage for a betrayed magician bent on revenge. Prospero’s seething softens when he sees through his daughter that love and forgiveness conquer darkness. Revel in outdoor performances in The Roman Garden Theatre under the Berkshire summer skies as the cast leads you on this magical and moving journey.

Come delight in the thrill of a professional Shakespeare production in the open air. Beer and wine are available.
