ISU Theatre: The Tempest

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”

Shakespeare’s last play, written by him alone, is set on an enchanted island that Prospero and her daughter, Miranda, have been forced to inhabit due to the betrayal of a sister. A storm created through Prospero’s magic causes this very sister and her conspirators to be shipwrecked on the island and face those whom they abandoned to the sea. Spirits come to life and magic is real but will the result be vengeance or forgiveness, war or love?
