The Tempest By William Shakespeare
Directed by Rudy Ramirez
Round Rock Amphitheatre, 301 West Bagdad, Round Rock
On a distant island a man waits. Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake, they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems. The Tempest, Shakespeare’s most magical play, is an enchanting exploration of the lure control and the greater power of forgiveness.
