This Noisy Isle: Shakespeare-inspired magical treasure hunt show heads out on tour

A social-distanced immersive adventure show will head out on tour this summer.

Inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest, This Noisy Isle from Spun Glass Theatre’ immersive adventure will take audiences through a strange, magical new world with an outdoor treasure hunt packed full with puzzles and sprites.

This social-distanced show will come to Norden Farm Centre for the Arts (28 – 31 July), Iris Theatre (1 August), Yvonne Arnaud Theatre (6 – 7 August), Poplar Union (8 August) and The Place Bedford (14 – 15 August).

Audiences will steer their team through choppy seas, meet mysterious characters and solve puzzles to search for a new home and find where they belong. Families will build a den with Caliban, learn magic tricks with Prospero and sing and dance with Ariel on an exciting mission to learn about how people integrate in new countries with new languages. This Noisy Isle is perfect holiday fun for the family which both entertains and educates.

Spun Glass Theatre is passionate about accessible, imaginative and educational theatre for children. The newly adapted interactive production makes concepts of human displacement and the challenges faced by migrants to the UK accessible to a young audience. Full of mysterious characters, it is perfect for children aged 7-11.

magical tales, we hope to create discussion and reflection for families about the refugee crisis.”
