THE public performance of The Tempest In A Teacup for children aged 5 to 95 takes place at The Acorn, Penzance, on Sunday, December 15 at 2pm.

Fairies, monsters, shipwrecks and romance on a magical island. What more could anyone want?

Shakespeare's final masterpiece recreated for adults and children by the enigmatic John Brolly.

Umbrella Arts' new reworking of The Tempest is a fairy tale suitable for the whole family. The old wizard Prospero reminisces about his adventures marooned on an enchanted island with his daughter, Miranda and a mischievous sprite, Ariel. These were magical times creating storms and shipwrecks to play tricks on his enemies. Until he finally learns about the true power of love and forgiveness.

Following on from a string of successful shows – Lost Worlds, Long Legged Beasties and Out Of The Box – John Brolly's Umbrella Arts Theatre Company has turned its own unique brand of interactive storytelling on Shakespeare's timeless classic The Tempest.

Tickets are £5 and £3.
