Oddsocks Theatre is performing its sci-fi adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest at Thoresby Park this weekend.

Shakespeare’s tale of illusion and revenge is brought vividly to life in Oddsock’s musical sci-fi adaptation.

Space explorer Prospero is marooned in a galaxy far, far away with his fearless daughter Miranda and a host of madcap aliens.

Years later, when his enemies’ ship is passing nearby, the chance for revenge on these space cowboys is hard to resist and he conjures up the force to bring them to him.

Prepare for launch, get your space suits on and take one small step for man, one giant leap for Shakespeare.

Taking place outside on the lawns at Thoresby, don’t forget your deckchairs, sunhat and suncream.

The production is on Sunday, June 17 at 4pm and tickets are £17, £15, £12 (children) and £50 (family) on 01623 822009.
