Shakespeare in the Square: The Tempest
July 2 @ 7:00 pm
Shakepeare in the Squares are back this summer with a production of The Tempest, in St Peter’s Square, on Saturday 2nd July at 7 pm.
Shakespeare in the Squares is a not-for-profit touring theatre company that stage a Shakespeare play in London garden squares for one night in each venue every summer. The productions are tailored to the individual garden squares, and we work with the garden committees and other local organisations to create a unique community celebration around the play.
This year they are peforming The Tempest, sometimes described as the perfect Shakespeare play: it has the love story of Romeo and Juliet, the revenge, intrigue and plotting of Richard III and the magic, fantasy and comedy of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It was the last play Shakespeare wrote solo (1610-11) and many equate Prospero’s relinquishing of magic with the playwright’s farewell to the stage.
Tickets range between £14 and £28 (plus booking fee) available from EVENTBRITE.
