“They had a captivated audience roaring with laughter and for a few hours they made Shakespeare come alive…” (Wiltshire Gazette and Herald)
With an atmospheric Greek island setting and not one but a whole flight of Ariels, Gill Morrell’s production of The Tempest truly was a storming success.
We love to hear good feedback from our audiences and this year’s cast – a vibrant mix of young and old, familiar faces and newcomers – was showered with praise. Making the very most of the drama and the comedy, the romance and the mystery of this complex play, the performance – as always with Shakespeare Live – was lifted to another level with stunning special effects. Music and costumes, lighting and sound that would grace a professional stage all combined with fine acting performances to make this a memorable experience.
Even the challenge of a Prospero who was taken ill and unable to perform on the opening night was something the company took in its stride, covering seamlessly and ensuring the show went on undiminished.
