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.

I enjoyed Carolyn Duffy's reading and found her to be sharp, witty, fresh, fun and insightful. I had a bit of difficulty with the accent, or maybe it was just my hearing, but couldn't catch every word. Also, was very disappointed that afterwards at the social, they ran out of books to sell, and I was unable to purchase the copies I wanted to have signed by the author. Leaving empty handed after making the effort to purchase tickets and show up so eagerly was a downer. In any case though, it was good to have seen her read her poetry, and hear the interview. I enjoyed both.
