The Tempest

June 11 - July 17, 2023

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Nike Doukas

“Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises,

Sounds and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not.”

Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, now in exile on a deserted island, conjures a magical storm to wreak havoc on those who betrayed him, and when his daughter falls in love with one of the shipwrecked nobles, the past must be confronted and a new future must be contemplated.

Romance, revenge, and raucous comedy combine in Shakespeare’s timeless tale of heartfelt reconciliation. Antaeus Company Member Nike Doukas (The Hothouse) helms this production featuring original music, live musicians, and wondrous surprises.
