Hailed by critics and audiences alike as one of Shakespeare's most magical and entertaining plays, The Tempest is a timeless story of power, romance, vengeance, and forgiveness. Prospero, a wizard and the rightful duke of Milan, struggles to deal with a band of traitors. His own servants, the natives of the island, toil for their freedom, and his daughter, Miranda, falls for the prince of Naples.
"I love this show. It's magical and incredibly touching, but it also has something to say. This is play about the power of forgiveness. In our media soaked world of warfare and scandal, The Tempest remains as relevant as it ever has been." - Charlie Pepiton, ETBU theatre professor
