This year's fall production will pick up where we left off this spring with The Tempest, by William Shakespeare.

 

TEMPEST
The Tempest | by William Shakespeare

Directed by Aasne Daniels
September 24, 25 and 26 at 7:30 p.m.

Abel had Cain.  King Hamlet had Claudius.  Mufasa had Scar.  In Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Prospero, too, has a brother who betrays him, stealing his dukedom and banishing him to a desert island with his young daughter, Miranda.  Years later, Prospero is poised to take his revenge and regain his rightful position in society, through magic and the help of the cunning spirit, Ariel.  Thought to be one of the last plays that Shakespeare wrote alone, The Tempest mixes grand drama with low comedy in a skillfully complex exploration of science and the supernatural, mastery and servitude, young love and old grudges.

In-person seating is available for IC students, faculty and staff only for this performance. A special live-stream performance will be available on September 24!
