The Tempest … from the Handlebards
Saturday, April 27,2019,2:00 pm - 5:00 pm£10 – £15
The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe. Join their all-female troupe at in the Gardens for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ’The Tempest’ like none other. In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter. And what’s the play about? Well – a shipwreck washes the court of Milan up onto a mysterious desert island, inhabited by magicians, sprites and monsters, where nothing is as it seems. There’s magic, musicality and mystery a plenty! for more information about the Handlebards go here: https://www.handlebards.com/ This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair (we have some if you can’t bring your own) or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!
