"Freak storm over the Med" – is it Global Warming, or could it be magic?

Those that enjoyed last summer's production of the Merchant of Venice – see photo – at Buerton House will be delighted to hear that Dean Taylor Productions will be returning next month.

They will be presenting The Tempest by William Shakespeare. The North West's acclaimed touring professional theatre company, Dean Taylor Productions, returns for an 8th Summer season of outdoor Shakespeare.

The company will perform at Buerton House on Saturday 12th June at 2.00pm and 7.00pm. Then, on Sunday 13th June, it's a 2.00pm performance.

"How beauteous mankind is! Oh brave new world
That has such people in it."

The Tempest is a comedy set in a wonderful world not quite of any other that Shakespeare created. It is a story of magic, monsters and spirits, of love and revenge, of an enchanted island set in a distant sea.

It is Prospero's story and Prospero's island. Prospero, the Duke of Milan, had been usurped by his brother Antonio 12 years before and set adrift with his baby daughter Miranda to perish in the deep.

He survives. He has magic and he has Ariel, a wondrous spirit of the air and Caliban, an island beast half-man, half-prehistoric link. And he has revenge in mind.

The Tempest is ideal for the family. For young and old. For Summer. Bring a picnic, a bottle of something nice, something to sit upon and let the sun shine!
