A new production of Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ is being performed at Bewdley Museum this month.
Quantum Theatre is bringing its production of the magical play of love and sorcery to the QEII gardens on Saturday 30 July.
The Tempest is an enchanting comedy, which follows Prospero and his daughter Miranda. They have lived on a remote island for 12 years after being wronged by a usurped sibling and a rival king. When fate brings his enemies sailing past the island Prospero conjures a fierce storm to take revenge on the people aboard. For those who are shipwrecked, trickery abounds, romance blossoms and monsters lurk in this fast-paced, musical family show.
Councillor Sally Chambers, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Health, Well-being and Housing said:
“This is another great event being put on at Bewdley Museum. The performances in the gardens are always popular as it’s a fantastic setting. There is plenty more to look forward to over the summer months too, with our free Music in the Garden concerts coming up next month.“
The Tempest starts at 7.30pm. The gardens will open at 7pm. The audience is advised to take a rug or low backed chair. Deck chairs are available on a first come first serve basis.
