Artist's Description

The theatre was the brainchild of Miss Rowena Cade, who lived at Minack House overlooking Porthcurno Bay. In 1929 a local village group of players had staged Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in a nearby meadow, repeating the production the next year. They decided that their next production would be The Tempest and Miss Cade offered the garden of her house as a suitable location, as it was beside the sea. Miss Cade and her gardener made a terrace and rough seating, hauling materials down from the house or up via the winding path from the beach below. In 1932, The Tempest was performed with the sea as a dramatic backdrop, to great success.
