PROFESSIONAL theatre company Rain or Shine is expected to delight family audiences with their production of a magical and mysterious masterpiece The Tempest.
Shakespeare’s tale encompasses comic capers, romantic encounters, villainous plots and a host of apparitions and spirits, brought to life indoors at the Old Barn, Purley, at 7.30pm on Friday, June 5.
The survivors of a shipwreck are washed up on an unknown island and are amazed to find themselves alive, without injury and wearing clothes that are dry and clean.
This is no ordinary isle â?? it is one ruled by a sorcerer who can control the elements, minds and conjure up spirits at will.
Welcome to Prospero’s island, where much is not as it seems and long-held secrets will be revealed.
Call 0118 942 4167 or see www.rainorshine.co.uk for tickets, which cost £13.20 (concessions £11).
The performance will be followed by a hog roast.
