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.

Annie – the stay at home spinster sister – leads a dreary existence looking after her sick mother who is confined to bed. Norman, who just happens to be married to Annie’s sister (Ruth), wants to take Annie away for a wicked weekend. Annie’s brother and his wife (Reg and Sarah) show up to look after Mum while Annie’s away, not realising that she is going off with Norman. Throw in a cat traumatised by an overzealous, lovelorn vet (Tom), and you have a comic stew guaranteed to leave you gasping with helpless laughter.
The British Players present Round and Round the Garden, part three of Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious trilogy, The Norman Conquests. Wit, wordplay, and general confusion run riot in this brilliant comedy, as six people who should know better run round and round a garden full of briars, nettles, and poorly constructed lawn furniture. This is a must-see for lovers of classic British fun and frolic.
