Gallery Players presents Shakespeare’s classic, The Tempest, a timeless tale of young love, old enemies, and the magic of storytelling. Exiled to a fantastical island, Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, unleashes a storm to shipwreck his traitor brother Antonio and the complicit Queen Alonsa of Naples, causing them to believe they are marooned on the island. Wanting to protect his daughter Miranda, and plotting to seek revenge using illusion and skillful manipulation, Prospero’s machinations ultimately bring about revelations, redemption, and newfound love.
