Taking Flight Theatre are back, this time with their unique take on Shakepeare’s The Tempest.
Join the Magic Staff Liner Corporation and indulge yourself with a jaunt on the newest addition to their fleet – their number one luxury ocean liner, The Remembrance. Let their crew take care of your every worry, your every woe on their 10 year anniversary cruise to The Island that Time Forgot.
Expect lots of laughs, physical comedy, live original music and most of all, expect the unexpected.
This production has live integrated BSL interpretation and audio description. Touch tours and BSL introductions are available by arrangement – please contact [email protected] or on 07785 947823 to discuss this, or any other access requirement.
Don’t forget to wrap up, wear suitable footwear and bring waterproofs. If you wish to picnic, come early and eat before the show, thus avoiding greedy actors pinching your pickles!
The Tour runs from June 8th – July 30th in beautiful venues across Wales and at the Bristol Shakespeare Festival in Blaise Castle.

Actors M/F for an outdoor, promenade, accessible tour of Wales of The Tempest.
Taking Flight are an award winning inclusive theatre company based in Cardiff, working with access at the heart of the creative process. This production of The Tempest will push boundaries and requires actors who are not afraid of hard work or challenges both in the rehearsal room and on tour. A good sense of humour and excellent work ethic are essential. Also desirable (but not essential) are actors with the following skills: driving license and willingness to drive on tour, ability to play a portable musical instrument, a strong singing voice, good movement skills, touring experience, a base in South Wales. The tour is to some of the most beautiful venues in Wales, actors will need to be prepared for the vigour of touring outdoors – we perform whatever the weather and it does rain in Wales!
