The Tempest (abridged)
by William Shakespeare

the tempest 960x540

“O, wonder!
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in't!”

Three  professional TSC actors come to your school or organization to play this fantastical tale. This story begins with a shipwreck, ends with forgiveness, and inbetween gives us an airy spirit, a, earthen monster - man, love at first sight, and laugh-out-loud comedy.

Length: 50 minutes 
Cost: $650

Performance Space: To play, we require approximately a 16’ wide x 15’ deep space for the performance.  Stage lights and amplified sound are unnecessary.  Our actors will bring everything they require with them.  No stage or elevation is required, so we can play in a variety of spaces.  Though we do not require a stage or raised playing space, please ensure the chosen performance area has good visibility for your audience.  Material is suitable for all ages. 

For more information and to book your show today, please contact Carmen-maria Mandley, TSC Education Manager, by emailing education@tnshakespeare.org or by calling (901) 759 - 0620.
