The Tempest

April 21–24, 2022


Teeming with fairies, monsters, and a spirit of superstition and magic, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s last romance. The deposed Duke their lovely daughter are shipwrecked on a small island where nothing is quite as it seems. As they separate fantasy from authenticity, they eventually discover a “brave new world” of love, harmony and redemption.
