29 Oct – 2 Nov – The Tempest on Fire – Penpont Estate
This Autumn, Penpont Estate on the banks of the River Usk will be completely transformed as part of one of the most immersive performances of Shakespeare’s The Tempest ever attempted in Wales.
The Tempest, set on a remote island in the wake of a mighty storm, is a bewitching tale of betrayal, revenge, plotting, scheming and is filled with all manner of magic, monsters, wizardry and spirits. Considered Shakespeare’s most magical play, now you can see it brought spectacularly to life by the Dept. of Enjoyment’s Artistic Director, David Goff Everleigh.
From 29th October to 2nd November, Everleigh will put his extensive experience of creating fire-events to good use, transforming Penpont’s iconic Greenman maze into Shakespeare’s enchanted island. Actors will be accompanied by circus and fire performers as well as live music and a ‘Farewell Firework Finale’ complete with pyrotechnics during Prospers’s famous final soliloquy.
An absolutely unmissable event!
Tickets £20. Includes coach travel to and from Theatr Brycheiniog.
Fine food, real ale and craft stalls on site.
