Locally-based company Foot in the Door Theatre are putting on four special performances in the Vintry Garden by St Albans Abbey at midday and 3pm on both days.

The company has just finished a tour across the South West and is returning to the Vintry Garden for the fourth year.

Performing The Tempest, the story of a shipwreck that brings a king and his entourage to the magic island occupied by Prospero, his daughter Miranda, the spirit Ariel and monster Caliban, is part of the company’s celebrations for the 450th birthday of the bard.

Performances are free and no booking is necessary. Audiences are invited bring their own picnics and seating. The garden will open half an hour before performances.
