Michaelmas Week 7
Shakespeare's last play, The Tempest, is a triumphant comedy of magic, love, and forgiveness. The exiled duke Prospero uses his magic powers to guide his enemies to repentance, his attendants to freedom, and his daughter to marriage. An enchanting classic celebrating some of the most complex and exciting characters Shakespeare has written.
HATS and Blank Theatre Company, in association with the Amateur Dramatic Club, join forces to bring to the stage this brilliant play. Blank Theatre Company, Cambridge's first dedicated Theatre in Education company, specialize in infusing the plays of William Shakespeare with a new form of ensemble ‘total theatre’ – utilizing physical theatre, naturalism, mask theatre, puppetry, verse, music, dance and voice – often bringing new and remote forms of international theatre to the stage wherever it advances the clear and entertaining telling of a story. Be moved, be inspired, be entertained.
Praise for Blank Theatre: 'Servants and Masters', (Blank’s first production), breathed new and dynamic life into familiar Shakespearean territory through a battery of multimedia, physical theatre and musical techniques – a really exciting and accessible piece.’ (Steve Waters, playwright)
