Orange Tree Theatre

Jessica Bailes will be appearing as Caliban in the Orange Tree Theatre’s new production of The Tempest.

On Prospero’s island, nothing is quite what it seems.

When the King’s boat is caught up in a supernatural shipwreck, all the survivors – even Trinculo the clown – must face their demons and hope for forgiveness.

Meanwhile, Miranda is finding out that there’s a whole new world beyond the island, if you’re brave enough to explore it.

If every ending is also a new beginning, what story would you want to tell?

Shakespeare’s magical tale of betrayal and hope explored for a younger audience. Primary Shakespeare has been an important part of the Orange Tree’s education programme for over 20 years, with around 4000 children taking part each year.
