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.

Quotes & Highlights
“plenty of moments of humor … the success of the Stage Guild production lies in its straightforward presentation of an often brilliant text, and its strong cast … a production so good you’d wish there was more Eliot they could put on.” —MD Theatre Guide
“sparkling banter along the way, in verse that’s light, conversational, and often—as when rest-home matron Lynn Steinmetz positively bellows ‘peace and quiet is our raison d’etre’”—pretty funny in Bill Largess’ nimble mounting.” —City Paper
