About the Play
Marooned on a distant island with his daughter Miranda, Prospero has spent twelve years perfecting his magic arts. Now, with the help of the spirit Ariel, he raises a storm at sea, bringing within his grasp the enemies who robbed him of his dukedom. But what vengeance does he propose to take?

This culminating masterpiece of Shakespeare’s career pits the desire for revenge against the demands of love and asks if man is capable of creating a brave new world.

Content Advisory
Though suitable for all ages, The Tempest may not be of interest to pre-teenage children. The design of the production evokes the Jacobean era in which the play was written. Effects used include haze, smoke, strobe lights and ultra-violet light.
