A magical and enchanting comedy, The Tempest is also William Shakespeare’s play best suited to our summer weather.
On a remote island, Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion, magical spirits and skilful manipulation. He conjures up a storm, the eponymous tempest, to lure his usurping brother Antonio and the complicit King Alonso of Naples to the island. For those who are shipwrecked, trickery abounds, romance blossoms and monsters lurk in this fast-paced, musical family show.
Quantum Theatre presents a brand new production of Shakespeare’s magical play of love and sorcery, of airy spirits and drunken sailors, of deep truths and theatrical illusion.

There will be barbeque available from the Tea Room before the performance and during the interval. Picnics are welcome during the performance. You will be seated on the grass, so we recommend bringing a cushion and a blanket for your comfort, and dress for the outdoors.
