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.

The theater is wonderful. The set was very well done. But the play was disappointing--too predictable--and it never made you laugh, cry, or feel a twinge of suspense. Some of the acting was excellent but at the end you just felt sort of let down.

The actress who played the old lady was superb! The play had some good seasoned actors, it was ashame that the story line was not better developed. The plot was not interesting and was predictable therefore the ending was anticlimactic.
