Shakespeare in the Barn--The Tempest
November 8, 2019 - November 9, 2019
Join us at Bristol's Mount Hope Farm, Friday, November 8 or Saturday, November 9 for Shakespeare's The Tempest, performed in the Barn.
You will enjoy the show from the comfort of the farm’s beautiful Barn. Sit under twinkling lights by a rustic stone fireplace and let yourself get immersed by the timeless story.
The Tempest is an audience favorite--- a timeless tale of magic, deception, revenge and marriage. Prospero, a sorcerer and the rightful Duke of Milan, dwells on an enchanted isle with his daughter, Miranda. Twelve years earlier, the duke's brother, Antonio, and Alonso, the King of Naples, conspired to usurp his throne.
They set Prospero and Miranda adrift in a boat, and they eventually found themselves marooned on the island. Prospero is served on his island by Ariel, a spirit who he freed from a tree with magic, and Caliban, son of the witch Sycorax. When magic reveals that a ship bearing his old enemies is sailing near the island, Prospero summons a storm to wreck their ship. The survivors make it to shore in scattered groups. And then the magic and the fun begins........
Tickets are $25 per person ($20 for MHF members, seniors and students) and may be purchased on Eventbrite for November 8 or November 9, or by calling the Farm at 401.254.1745.
