The Tempest (set in Huddersfield)

About the event

After the success of Henry V, A Christmas Carol and Macbeth, our community production returns for 2022!

It’s a hot August and thunderstorms are brewing. All summer, the drama club from the National Theatre has been rehearsing and getting ready to take a show up to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The troupe of performers from London set off on the journey, but a mysteriously dodgy engine has left their coach broken down and stranded them here in Huddersfield!

Can the colourful characters of Kirklees help? Or does the Lawrence Batley Theatre boss and their own group of ambitious actors have other ideas?

Shakespeare’s tale of power, deception and forgiveness is given a novel twist as local people take to our stage.
