A Noise Within director Timothy Douglas transposes Shakespeare's brilliant final work to the smoky, seductive world of 1920s Florida. Widely considered 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.
