Shakespeare at The Old Globe Theater: The Tempest
Wednesday, June 27, 8–11 pm

Stephen L. WeberPresenter: Facilitator: Karen Kenyon, M.A.

It isn’t summer without Shakespeare at The Old Globe’s outdoor stage. In The Tempest, Prospero, the Duke of Milan, lives in exile on a desert island with his daughter Miranda, after being thrown out of power by his wicked brother. He uses dark magic to lure his enemies to the island, but his plot for revenge could destroy Miranda’s happiness, so Prospero must choose. Participants may attend an optional pre-performance lecture at the theater for an overview of the play, with particular attention to characters and their motives, to help us see their relevance today.
