WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Another Side of the Island re-imagines Shakespeare's The Tempest in a surprising, often hilarious, and deeply affecting fantasy. When a woman of power is at the center of this story, set in motion by vengeance, the events look very different. Set on an island of the imagination where anything is possible and gender bending is the norm, Prospera conjures a magical tempest that brings her former enemies to shore. At last, she restores her rightful claim to the throne of Milan, ensures her daughter's future and learns timeless lessons of love, power and aging. With music ranging from gospel to funk and read in a highly theatrical style, this re-imagined classic is at once uproarious and profound.
