2014 marked the first year of a collaboration with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in Stratford-upon-Avon for this particular programme with the Niagara University students. This included a staged production of Shakespeare's The Tempest in Hall's Croft Garden.
Val's concept for the production of The Tempest continues the company's commitment to raising awareness of climate change. The Tempest is set on an island, which Val envisioned as an island disappearing due to rising sea levels and climate change.
For more information on the company's dedication to environmental concerns please see details of our Summer Party 2013 and read the message from the Director of Friends of the Earth.
