February 10 - March 27, 2016

By William Shakespeare
Margeson Theater

Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, finds himself stranded on a remote and mystical island with only his daughter Miranda for company. Seeking revenge against those who conspired against him, Prospero conjures a powerful storm to shipwreck them. Just as retribution is finally within reach, Miranda falls in love with Ferdinand, son of one of the conspirators, putting her relationship with her father to the ultimate test.
