Lovers, conjurors, ship-wrecked wanderers, and raging winds – and
hearts - take the stage in Shakespeare’s epic romantic play.
A fantastic, storm-raging theatre event you don’t want to miss.

“Be not afeard, the isle is full of noises...”  – Tempest Act III, Scene 2

Trickery, mystery, and revenge set the stage for one of Shakespeare
masterpieces, where spirits roam, magic is real, reality is elusive, and illusion
abounds. In this fanciful classic, often compared to A Midsummer Night’s
Dream, an exiled noble turned sorcerer uses his power to raise a fierce storm,
shipwrecking a group of conspirators onto his remote island home that’s full of
mysterious and magical beasts, and nothing is as it seems. There, attended by
his daughter, the sorcerer leads his enemies through a fantastic dream where
all must choose between vengeance and the freedom that can only come with
reconciliation and forgiveness. Conjure up a night of unforgettable
entertainment!

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on.” - Prospero

First written and performed around 1611, The Tempest is considered to be the
last of Shakespeare’s late romance plays and believed to be one of the last
plays he wrote alone. For centuries, the play was disregarded and viewed as
an inferior work compared to others in Shakespeare's collection. Before the
ban of play performances in 1642, it was rarely performed, and only gained
popularity after the Restoration when his plays were brought back to the stage.
In the twentieth century, scholars, and actors alike, began to reconsider the
play's value, and today it is considered one of the bards most well-written
plays. If you’ve never seen a Shakespeare play before,
this is a great place to start!
