Back Alley Productions presents this years free Shakespeare Summer Series - William Shakespeare's The Tempest.
Shows are Friday and Saturday from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. both nights.
Among the Bard's greatest and most popular classics, it details the conflicts and intrigue of several castaways on a mystical island where superstition rules supreme.
Prospero, an ousted duke of former political power, seeks revenge against the conspirators who overthrew him. Thought to have died in an orchestrated shipwreck, he is now an expert magician who rules over the island’s many spirits.
When Prospero learns a royal convey, carrying several of the usurpers, is nearby the island he conjures a storm to sink it. With the upper hand over the new castaways, Prospero sets out to requite those who wronged him, including his own brother Antonio. But his vendetta is complicated by the mercy of his daughter Miranda who has fallen in love with one of the shipwrecked nobles.
