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.

“As close to perfection as contemporary playwriting gets.” —New York Times
Gorgeous and haunting, this drama uses richly drawn characters and powerful storytelling to weave a tale of love, loss and faith. A recently bereaved widower seeks help from a therapist when he begins seeing his wife’s ghost, but the therapist, a former priest, struggles with problems of his own.
By Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Lime Tree Bower, Shining City)
Directed by Joy Zinoman
Featuring Donald Carrier, Chris Genebach, Edward Gero and Laoisa Sexton
