Widely considered to be one of Shakespeare's greatest works, The Tempest is a lyrical play that tells the story of Prospero, an exiled duke who lives as the master of an enchanted isle where fantastical creatures, mystery, music and romance abound. A shipwreck delivers Prospero's enemies to the island, and the plot thickens when his beloved daughter falls for the enemy's son. It's a magical tale about the transformative power of forgiveness and the bond between parent and child. The Tempest, believed to be the last play Shakespeare wrote alone, opens City Lit Theater's 34th season. Learn More
