Event Details

Pack a picnic, some camping chairs and gather family and friends around Heartbreak Productions’ stone circle to meet druids, bards and revellers who will perform a mystical rendition of Shakespeare’s final play, The Tempest.

​Join us in the wonderful surroundings of Astley Park’s Walled Garden for an evening of outdoor theatre as Chorley Council presents the final Theatre in the Park event of 2016. Using masks, dance and song this merry band of performing pagans will transport you to Prospero’s magical isle, upon which he crafts a vengeful attack on his usurping kinsmen.

More than a love story, this outdoor production of The Tempest explores man’s conflict with nature, freedom and power, betrayal and forgiveness. So get involved at the storytelling circle and witness our druids enact Shakespeare’s most memorable adventure.

Tickets are £10 for adults, £7 for children (aged 8 -16), or £30 for a family ticket of two adults and two children. Please note this performance is suitable for children aged eight and over.
