The banished duke Prospero and his daughter Miranda have lived on a desolate island since he was thrust out of power by his usurping brother Antonio. As a ship filled with his enemies sails nearby, Prospero conjures a tempest that leaves them wrecked and sprawled on his shores. Through magic and twists, Prospero exacts revenge… as his daughter discovers something altogether different.

The play will be directed by Karen Sheridan and will perform at Rackham Park August 30, 31 and September 1 in Fenton, Michigan; and September 6, 7, 8 in Linden, Michigan where it will rehearse.
