19-24th July 2021
We are delighted to announce that this summer the Cotswold Arcadians will be presenting The Tempest by William Shakespeare. This will be directed by Jonathan Vickers and performed at Hatherop Castle from Monday 19 to Saturday 24 July – one innovation this year will be that we’ll be performing a Saturday matinee, with a special price for families: it will be great if that means that we can introduce more children to the fun and magic of Shakespeare.
Probably Shakespeare’s last play, The Tempest is, for many, his finest achievement. Alive with music, bursting with action, peppered with comedy, and suffused with mystery and magic, it brings together themes of love, revenge, forgiveness and redemption. A climactic finale to the work of our greatest playwright.
The play is uniquely suited to the Arcadians. Set entirely outdoors, and playing less than two hours, it brings us some of the bard’s most enthralling characters and some of his most beautiful language. The perfect entertainment for a warm summer’s evening at Hatherop Castle. A treat to look forward to!
