WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Shakespeare Theatre presents The Tempest. Often seen as the playwright's farewell to the theatre world, Shakespeare's The Tempest reveals a world of illusions and magic--where an angry sorcerer manipulates spirits and humans alike in his search for revenge. Banished to an abandoned island by his power-hungry brother, the Duke of Milan, Prospero seizes his opportunity for retribution in a powerful storm that shipwrecks the Duke and his nobles on the island. The story of a man who realizes that the sole way to regain his humanity is to relinquish his omnipotent control, The Tempest is a powerful tale that unites Shakespeare's celebrated themes of love, man's vulnerability and forgiveness. Kate Whoriskey directs.
