Shakespeare's The Tempest

Open Air Picnic Theatre on the Cedar Lawn

Fri 20 July and Sat 21 July at 7:45pm

The Tempest is one of Shakespeare's most enjoyable plays. Stephano, Trinculo and Caliban create some of Shakespeare's best comedy moments and, Prospero and Ariel scheme away. Some see Shakespeare himself, others a scheming old alchemist.

This is the second of our Shakespeare performances in Summer 2012. We are also putting on The Taming of the Shrew.

The GB Theatre Company

The GB Theatre Company is a British-based classical theatre company formed in 2010.  It is dedicated to producing plays that can be played both indoor and in the open air.  They present plays with a full cast of experienced (and some very distinguished) actors with limited doubling up. They perform the plays in Elizabethan costume.

The company played at Kentwell during their first season, in 2010, they produced a very impressive Merry Wives of Windsor with an outstanding Falstaff, ably supported by an excellent cast and also As You Like It with as good a fight scene as you'll ever see. They followed this in 2011 with Twelfth Night and an excellent Malvolio and a great Romeo & Juliet.
