Shakespeare’s classic story of a shipwreck and a mysterious desert island is brought to life by the hugely talented, bicycle powered HandleBards female theatre troupe.
The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe. Join them in the 18th Century Walled Garden for a production of Shakespeare’s ’The Tempest’ like none other.
In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.
And what’s the play about? Well – a shipwreck washes the court of Milan up onto a mysterious desert island, inhabited by magicians, sprites and monsters, where nothing is as it seems. There’s magic, musicality and mystery a plenty!
