Award-winning outdoor theatre company Illyria will bring their fabulous production of The Tempest to Pinner Memorial Park on August Bank Holiday Sunday (August 25).

The magician Prospero is marooned on an island with his daughter Miranda. With the assistance of a powerful air spirit, he conjures up a storm to shipwreck his enemies on the shore of the island. Inexorably they are driven towards the centre of the island to answer to Prospero – until Prospero learns that in spite of everything Miranda has met and fallen in love with Ferdinand, the son of his enemy. Which is greater – his thirst for revenge or his aptitude for forgiveness?

Now in its 28th year, Illyria has delighted audiences the length and breadth of the UK, and in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, the United States and Canada performing some of the most well-loved productions on offer. The company has won four international Best Performance awards and attracted numerous five-star and Critics’ Choice reviews for the lively clarity of its approach to Shakespeare’s plays.

Tickets are available now at or in the Heath Robinson Museum shop (open Thursday to Sunday, 11am to 4pm).
