The Tempest

By: William Shakespeare
Adapted by Allan Byrne

Show Description:
After a dozen years stranded on a remote island, the magician Prospero directs the spirits at his command to raise a storm and torment a passing ship that carries the treacherous brother who exiled him and took his place as the Duke of Milan. The prospect of wreaking vengeance melts away when his daughter falls in love with one of the castaway nobles. Shakespeare’s farewell to the stage, THE TEMPEST is infused with magic, music and romance, exploring the meaning of imprisonment and freedom, forgiveness and redemption, illusion and reality.
