Join us for a magical outdoor theatre experience and be transported to a land of mischief and mayhem this summer.

When sorceress Prospero uses her powers to conjure an almighty storm, the survivors of a shipwreck are left deserted on a remote island… or so they think. The group soon discover an enchanting world of fairies and mythical beasts awaits them in this tale of feuding families and falling in love.

Using just a few props and some speedy costume changes, our cast of four actors bring to life all of the mad-cap characters in this action-packed, 80 minute version of Shakespeare’s final play.

Perfect for everyone over the age of 6, gather the family, slap on some sun cream and enjoy this brilliantly bonkers open air production of The Tempest against the backdrop of Nottingham Playhouse.

Wet Weather

As this production is taking place outdoors, we recommend checking the forecast ahead of your visit to ensure you are dressed appropriately for the weather. We’re hoping for glorious sunshine, but all performances will go ahead come rain or shine as long as it remains safe to do so. Where performances are cancelled due to severe wet weather, all customers will be offered a full refund or the choice to attend a different performance of The Tempest (subject to availability).
