Come along to Rose Bank Gardens on Friday 23 August at 7.00 pm when we will welcome back The Illyria Outdoor Open Air Theatre Company and their version of The Tempest, by William Shakespeare. 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? Tickets are £15 for an adult and £8 for children under 16. Bring your family and friends, and don't forgot your picnics and blankets!
