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
“The Ice Child is a must see for anyone willing to look upon a horrible, but easily conceivable slice of life. Be prepared to shift uncomfortably in your seat and feel the pressure of terror closing in on you. I promise, it’s fun!” —DC Metro Theatre Arts
Urban legend gets a shot of Edgar Allan Poe and a dash of contemporary horror in Factory 449’s world premiere of The Ice Child.
Catherine wakes to find herself imprisoned in a coffin-size freezer chest. To discover how she got there — and whether she can talk her way to freedom — she must quickly decide which of her captors to trust. Outside her makeshift prison, a struggle soon arises over Catherine’s treatment that will decide the fate of victims and villains alike. Told through a heart-pounding mash-up of film, live performance, and visual art, The Ice Child is a ticking time bomb of a show.
