The Tempest

henryv

There’s a storm raging within Prospero, almost as violent as the storm he conjures around his remote island.

Exiled twelve years earlier, Prospero is a powerful magician, still seething with anger and a desire for revenge having been banished to his island and usurped by his brother Antonio. And now that brother has been stranded on the same island.

From such furious beginnings erupts Shakespeare’s magical journey of liberty through redemption. Gripping in its beauty and whimsy, The Tempest is a delightful tale of cavorting spirits, music and merriment, love and loss, and finally reconciliation and forgiveness.

By William Shakespeare
Director John Bell
