About This Show

In The Tempest, Shakespeare’s final play, magic, first love and the forces of revenge intersect on a mysterious island. Prospero has spent 12 years in exile watching his growing daughter, Miranda, all the while plotting to punish his duplicitous brother with the sorcery he has been practicing. But when the opportunity presents itself, he learns that magic doesn’t make the man, the world is stranger than it appears and that perhaps the past is only history.
