Description

Pack a picnic and enjoy Shakespearean comedy in the beautiful surroundings of Bramall Hall.

This play is bought to Bramall Hall by the award-winning Illyria. It's lyrical, thought provoking and raucously funny.

The magician Prospero is marooned on an island with his daughter Miranda. With the assistance of a powerful air spirit he keeps in servitude, he conjures up a storm to shipwreck his enemies on the shore of the island. Inexorably they are driven towards the centre of the island to answer to Prospero until Prospero learns that in spite of everything Miranda has met and fallen in love with Ferdinand, the son of his enemy. Which is greater his thirst for revenge or his aptitude for forgiveness?

Running time: 2 hours 10 minutes (including a 20 minute interval).

Suitable for adults 12+.

Gates open at: 6pm

First 50 tickets: £13 plus booking fee.
