Event Tickets › Lord Chamberlain's Men present The Tempest + Pre-Theatre supper available
Saturday 2nd June 2018, 7pm
This summer The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, in their fourteenth successful year, are touring Shakespeare’s spellbinding masterpiece The Tempest – a play of soaring poetry, high comedy and tender love. You can buy a ticket for the performance only or a ticket for pre-theatre two-course supper featuring a Q&A with the artistic director and performance.
No tickets are to be issued for this event, so please print off your confirmation e-mail and bring it with you to the event as proof of purchase.
With audiences encouraged to bring picnics, a chair or a blanket this show promises to be another authentic, excellent and magical treat from the company.
Be sure to catch this brilliant company perform Shakespeare as it would have been; all male, in the open air and in full Elizabethan costume with traditional music and dance. This is undoubtedly one of the hottest tickets of the summer; book early to avoid missing out!
This year for the first time the abbey is also offering a pre-theatre supper at 5pm in the spectacular 19th century Abbey House with the chance for a 15 minute Q&A with Peter Stickney, artistic director, about the show. Places for supper are limited.
He has directed their last three productions; The Tempest (2018), The Comedy of Errors (2017) and Much Ado About Nothing (2016).
Peter trained at the Oxford School of Drama and is a theatre maker who has worked extensively in all aspects of the industry from producer to lighting designer and everything in between. As a producer he has worked at Southwark Playhouse, New Diorama and Hoxton Hall and was Associate Producer on Twelfth Night (2015) with The Lord Chamberlain’s Men and the Number One UK tour of Deathtrap last Autumn. As an actor he has worked for, amongst many other venues and companies, Theatre Royal Bath, The Roundhouse, Southbank Centre, Vienna’s English Theatre and The Lord Chamberlain’s Men in Romeo and Juliet (2007) and Much Ado About Nothing (2008). In 2010 Peter was short-listed for the JMK Award, which celebrates outstanding young theatre directors.
