Join us this summer as Curve Young Company present two of Shakespeare's finest stories. Magic, mystery and hidden secrets are revealed in these two productions directed by Curve Associate Director Tim Ford. Its a time for dreamers.
THE TEMPEST 27 - 29 JUN Studio
Prospero is banished with his daughter to a remote island. Twelve years later, and intent on revenge, he raises a magical tempest that shipwrecks his enemies on his shores. What begins as a search for retribution develops into a journey of acceptance and compassion in Shakespeare’s final play.
THE DREAMING 4 - 6 JUL Studio
Music by Howard Goodall. Lyrics and book by Charles Hart.
Commissioned and first performed by The National Youth Music Theatre, The Dreaming is a musical version of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Composer Howard Goodall (Hired Man) and lyricist Charles Hart (Phantom of the Opera) combine glorious tunes with superb comedy and a distinctly spooky edge.
