“We are such stuff that dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.” William Shakespeare’s The Tempest takes place on a magical island where reality and imagination meet. Considered by many to be his final solo work, this drama challenges both the players and the audience to engage in the fanciful world Shakespeare created and grapple with the ideas of justice and revenge. Beginning with an exile and concluding with a reconciliation, The Tempest contains themes of forgiveness, identity, and family, underscoring the power of an individual action to both create and destroy.
