Shaftesbury Park, Carrickfergus

Shakespeare's final play, is also believed by many to be his finest comedy, presented in Illyria's slick, physical and imaginative style.

A magician marooned on an island with his daughter conjures up a storm to shipwreck his enemies on the shore of the island.

Which is greater – his desire for revenge or his aptitude for forgiveness?

The play, believed to be the last that Shakespeare wrote single-handedly, is lyrical, thought-provoking and raucously funny. More than 400 years after it was written it still has the capacity to surprise!
