The Tempest takes to the streets of Oxford
This summer we’ll be bringing back the hugely popular format of our sell-out summer 2016 & 2017 productions of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In small groups the audience will convene in a secret location and discover the scenes and characters of The Tempest in the last places you’d expect to find them.
Could Ariel be bobbing by on that boat, is Prospero serving us in this coffee shop? This immersive and interactive way of storytelling brings classic texts to life in true Creation style.
