This Rough Magic
Magic, witchcraft, mystery, fairies and all things spooky!
The mysterious figure of Prospero from Shakespeare's 'The Tempest' introduces this fascinating mix of comedy, tragedy and philosophical ideas, exploring the themes of the occult. A group of talented and experienced actors will lead you on an exciting journey through a wide selection of Shakespeare's plays and poems and take you into another world.
