Shakespeare Week - open air theatre at Dartmouth Castle

The dramatic scenes from The Tempest will be performed in the open air in the stunning waterfront surroundings of Dartmouth Castle in one of the highlights of the Mayflower anniversary year.

The annual Dartmouth Shakespeare Week Open Air Production will feature the production by The Inn Theatre Company, for the Mayflower commemorations.

The Tempest was written around 1610 and is said to be based on reports of the shipwreck on the island of Bermuda earlier in that decade.

It talks of the native ‘monsters’ on the island and the ‘Brave New World’ and presents echoes of the Mayflower's journey and those that first settled in New England.

More details will be provided soon.
