The Tempest @ Heeley People’s Park

July 31 @ 6:30 pm

The Tempest - The HandleBards

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 Heeley People’s Park for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ’The Tempest’ like no 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!

This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!

Notes on Performance

  • Doors open at 5.30pm, so bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
  • Chairs, picnics, blankets and any other low level accessories are welcome.
  • In case of rain, please don’t bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching, so please wear these instead.

This is a ‘Pay What You Can’ performance – a hat will be handed round at the end of the performance. Everyone is welcome and there is no need to book tickets in advance.
