The Tempest

Our Michaelmas production is Shakespeare’s The Tempest, with a cast of over 75 pupils performing on our Forest Stage.

The Tempest is a play about magic, betrayal, love, and forgiveness set on an island near Italy.  The one-time Duke of Milan, Prospero, and his beautiful daughter live with a sprite called Ariel and a strange wildman called Caliban.  Prospero is a powerful magician who creates a storm, or tempest, that sets the scene for the play and all the dramatic events that unfold.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to one of our performances, on Wednesday 20 November at 7pm or Friday 22 November.  This event is free to attend and there will be a collection for the Founders’ Bursary Fund on behalf of our pupils’ fundraising efforts for this year.

Both performances will take place in the Deaton Theatre and start at 7pm; we expect the show should come down at approximately 9pm.
