For twelve years Prospero, the rightful duke of Milan, has dwelt on an island after his brother Antonio betrayed him and cast him adrift in a small boat. For twelve years he has plotted revenge on those who overthrew him...
After successful tours of "Romeo and Juliet" and "A Christmas Carol" in 2016, 'This is My Theatre' is back in 2017 and set to create a storm this Brighton Fringe with their one-act adaptation of Shakespeare’s "The Tempest!"
Classical language will combine with live music and choral song in the beautiful setting of Brighton’s oldest building to bring what is thought to be the bard’s final play to life. A tale of revenge, love and forgiveness, this is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
General admission £10 Concessions £6
Audiences have said of This is my Theatre’s work:
“Just seen this brilliant group perform…Absolutely fantastic - my family and I loved it!”
“What an atmospheric and cleverly directed interpretation of the play (Romeo & Juliet)… Thank you for such an intimate and and beautifully performed evening”
'This is my Theatre' was formed in 2016 by Sarah Slator. The aim of the company is to produce classical plays and literature that are accessible to all, particularly those living in rural communities. As such, they continue to work with charity The Churches Conservation Trust to stage productions in their ancient buildings, aiding their mission to “work with local communities to bring them alive again”. Sarah is delighted that they are able to use a CCT church which has hosted 'This is my Theatre' previously, for participation in Brighton Fringe 2017.
