The Tempest

The Tempest is set on a magical island where the sorcerer Prospero, his daughter Miranda, and Prospero’s servants, Ariel and Caliban reside. A shipwreck brings familiar faces to the island and Prospero decides to right an injustice done to him in the past while setting the stage for a future romance between his daughter and the young Ferdinand. Meanwhile, Caliban plots to regain his freedom only to be thwarted by Ariel.

This 2017 production was directed by Antoni Cimolino and Barry Avrich and starred Martha Henry, Graham Abbey, Michael Blake, Sébastien Heins, and Mamie Zwettler.
