From magic, a storm; from a storm, vengeance; from vengeance, virtue.

The dramatic themes of Shakespeare’s The Tempest resonate more strongly with every passing year. Indeed, the passage of time and knowledge is one of the play’s most important themes, with a wronged man learning to wield his power with humility and empathy.

Performed using minimal props, no set, the actors never leave the stage. Each actor plays multiple roles and frequently shifts characters while on stage, offering an intriguing and often comedic effect.  The vibrant hands-on nature of the program provides an extraordinary opportunity to engage faculty and students far beyond the confines of the English and Theatre departments.

Recommended Grades:  6th – 12th grades
Presented by:  Actors from the London Stage
Approx. Length:  60 min
