About This Show

The Tempest, a play of enduring enchantment, is one of the richest treasures found in drama. Shakespeare’s magical last play, his poignant farewell to the stage, has love, tragedy and comedy combined in equal measure. The usurped wizard, Prospero, draws his enemies to his enchanted island to exact revenge yet, ultimately, finds peace and the ability to forgive. Hailed as a stunning climax to the career of England’s favorite dramatist, The Tempest is a play praising the glories of reconciliation and forgiveness. Some believe that Prospero’s final speeches signify Shakespeare’s personal adieu from the stage.

The Tempest, by William Shakespeare
