The Tempest Comes To A Scout Hall
Peripeteia with the kind assistance of The Murray Hutchinson Creative Trust presents
By William Shakespeare
An island in the middle of nowhere. Prospero and his daughter have been stranded for 12 years. He has become an expert in ancient magic. When a boat full of his old enemies appears he will stop at nothing to wreak his revenge - while trying to preserve the next generation from their terrible history.
Shakespeare's final statement about the elements of the universe, the theatre, and the nature of humanity is brought to you this summer in an 80-year-old sea scout hall just ten minutes drive from Auckland's city centre.
Peripeteia (Cymbeline, Pinocchio, Much Ado About Nothing) return with another flip-a-coin production which promises unpredictability, laughter, tears, and a top-quality night out. Arrive early, cast the play and be part of a truly unique performance - no night is the same!
