Theatre on the Green ‘The Tempest’
Professional theatre company Rain or Shine, hailed by ‘The Stage’ as “one of the best companies touring open air theatre” are again set to delight family audiences on the Green with their production of The Bard’s magical and mysterious masterpiece.
Shakespeare’s The Tempest is a tale that encompasses comic capers, romantic encounters, villainous plots and a host of apparitions and spirits, where a fantastic web of intrigue is woven.
Washed up on an unknown isle after a tempestuous storm at sea, survivors of a shipwreck are amazed to find themselves alive, without injury and wearing clothes that are dry and clean! For this is no ordinary isle. It is one ruled by a sorcerer who can control the elements, control minds and conjure up spirits at will. Welcome to Prospero’s island, a place where much is not as it seems and long held secrets will be revealed…
Join the acclaimed Rain or Shine Theatre Company for another gripping stage production. Suitable for family audiences from 6 to 96 this is an ideal choice for an outdoor theatrical event, bringing classical theatre into the heart of the local community.
Please note no tickets required. This is a ‘free of charge’ performance on The Green, Silloth on Solway, on Sunday 26th July at 3.00pm.
Audiences are invited to bring along low-backed seating or rugs, and a picnic to maximise their enjoyment of the al fresco performance.
