The Tempest @ Abraham Moss Community School

  • Presented by the Royal Exchange Theatre Young Company
  • 15 August 2018 - 18 August 2018
  • On Tour / External

Following the success of WE WERE TOLD THERE WAS DANCING and MIXTAPE, The Royal Exchange Theatre’s award-winning Young Company present a unique twist on a familiar text, performed in promenade at Abraham Moss School, Crumpsall.

'This islands mine…Which thou tak’st from me.'

School’s out for summer. The school should be empty. A desolate prison. No more rules. But wait, what’s that on the CCTV? A person, a spirit, a mystical creation? Something strange is happening at Abraham Moss School. Rules are broken, souls are bared and can you ever really forgive?

THE TEMPEST will feature integrated BSL.
