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.

Read about director Timothy Douglas.
Trapped in a cramped Houston apartment with her soft-spoken son and self-absorbed daughter-in-law, widow Carrie Watts dreams of returning to her home in the small Gulf Coast town of Bountiful, where she grew up and raised her own family. Fearing that she’s an imposition and chafing under her daughter-in-law’s watchful eye, she steals away with her latest pension check and heads home. The results are both brilliantly life-affirming and heartbreaking in one of legendary playwright Horton Foote’s most beloved works.
Timothy Douglas directs an African American cast in a new production endorsed by the Foote estate especially for Round House*.
*The cast includes Doug Brown, Jessica Frances Dukes, Chinai J. Hardy, Robert Jason Jackson, Lizan Mitchell and Lawrence Redmond.
