Shakespeare saved his best for last: his final play, The Tempest is his most magical and engrossing tale. It follows the adventures of Prospero, an exiled duke who lives as the master of an enchanted isle abounding with fantastical creatures, mystery, music and romance. When a shipwreck delivers Prospero's enemies to the island, the plot thickens as his beloved daughter falls for one of the castaways. Bring a lawn chair and a picnic basket and enjoy this outdoor production from the Olney Theatre Center at the Root Family Stage. In celebration of the 65th anniversary of the National Players -- OTC's touring company of young professional actors -- celebrated National Player "veterans" will compose half the cast while current company members will take the younger roles.

Part of the 2007 Shakespeare in Washington festival
Synetic’s silent Hamlet won three Helen Hayes awards and became something of a calling card for the company. Now Synetic offers a take on yet another great Shakespearean tragedy, Macbeth—the dark, brooding tale of a husband and wife whose ambition and lust for power sends them into an unescapable swirl of murder, madness and self-destruction. Synetic’s signature blend of dance, movement and music will cast new light on the universal struggles and themes of one of Shakespeare’s most complex works, told through the art of silence.
