Shakespeare’s The Tempest at Glamis Adventure Playground

By on May 19, 2015 in Events

The Shadwell Community Project and Cornucopia Theatre Company are producing their fourth, open air, Shakespeare production of The Tempest at Glamis Adventure Playground during May and June.

The production comprises of professional actors from the Cornucopia Theatre Company, along with local children who have auditioned for roles in The Tempest. This is an unusual interpretation of the play, in an unusual setting.

All the performances are free and will go ahead what ever the weather, so just turn up and enjoy yourselves. Food and drink will be available.

Donations are welcome and all of the proceeds will support the work of  The Shadwell Community Project and Glamis Adventure Playground.

Performance Dates

  • May 22, 23, 24, 29, 30, 31
  • June 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14
  • Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm
  • Sundays at 3pm

Cornucopia explores Shakespeare’s text using physical theatre, music, circus and carnival, to bring this magical tale to life. This magical story tells the battle of wills between Native American Caliban and Norse Prospero, who commands the gravity defying Ariel.

‘The Tempest’ builds on Cornucopia’s previous productions at Glamis Adventure Playground; ‘Macbeth’ (2011), ‘Romeo and Juliet’ (2012) and ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ (2013).

This on-going work in collaboration with local community actors has succeeded in establishing outdoor Shakespeare at Glamis as an annually anticipated event.
