The Tempest introduction

The banks of the River Cherwell became an ideal venue for the shipwrecked isle in The Tempest. Magic, sorcery, mysterious music, chimes and whispering trees added to the play’s atmosphere of shadowy intrigue. Full theatrical use was made of the surroundings with characters making entrances by boat, and the outdoor venue lit by twinkling lanterns. Directed by Joanna Read (Salisbury Playhouse, Bolton Octagon, Birmingham Rep), The Tempest continued despite Gary Bates (Ariel) breaking his arm during one of the show’s early previews!
