Appropriately situated a few miles from Land’s End in Cornwall, England, Minack Theatre certainly wins the award for most stunning location. As legend has it, after local villagers staged Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in a local meadow, a Miss Rowena Cade offered her seaside garden as a more suitable location. 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.”
