The Tempest

Written by: William Shakespeare, adapted by Kenneth Cavander
Directed by: Andy Wolk

The Tempest is Shakespeare’s final play. A ship is wrecked in a mighty storm and the survivors are marooned on a mystical island controlled by the wizardly magician Prospero. What happens to them on this eventful day deals with the whole condition of man. Fathers will lose their children and discover them again. First love will bloom and revenge plots will be carried out. Shakespeare asks: can mercy triumph over vengeance? Can tyrants set free those they hold? Shakespeare’s masterpiece comes alive in a very contemporary fashion in this striking new adaptation by Kenneth Cavander.
