The Tempest re-imagined for everyone aged six and over (2009)

5 June – 28 June

William Shakespeare

 The Tempest re-imagined for everyone aged six and over was the theatre's second re-imagined adaptation, following the success of A Midsummer Night's Dream the previous year. The 'completely, energetically entertaining' (Time Out) adaptation retained Shakespeare's language and text, and was brought vividly to life with music, physical humour and plenty of opportunities for the whole audience to get involved. Directed by Liam Steel , the interpretation was a resounding success thoroughly captivating children of all ages.
