Tue 25th June 2019 - Thu 4th July 2019

On a distant Motorway island, a stranded man waits…

Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. It's  a Motorway services. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a limousine appears at the junction, he reaches out across the roaring motorway to the limo that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical motorway traffic jam he wrecks the limo and his enemies are stranded in his services. They find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems. Shakespeare’s comedy about a major act of betrayal, ill treatment, the development of magic arts and a plot of revenge. Retold in a new setting and a perfect companion piece to Return To The Forbidden Planet.
