William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”

Summer 2012

A thunderstorm shipwrecks the royal courts of Milan and Naples on a remote island. What seems like bad luck is in fact part of the plan of Prospera, the true Duchess of Milan who has been deprived of her throne. On the island, however, Prospera herself is a usurper. “Monster” Caliban and Ariel, an airy spirit, are both enslaved by Prospera and aspire freedom from their mistress. But Prospera’s powers are unsurpassed…

In July 2012, Actor’s Nausea presents “The Tempest”, William Shakespeare’s last great work, with a multitude characters believing to be forging their own destinies.
But who really can?
