Reviews

  • "It is truly magical in every way—not only in the dreamy text Shakespeare crafts so beautifully and inspirationally, but in the way Granberry and his technical team and superb actors transform McEachern’s Warehouse into a world far removed from the bustle of Wilmington’s downtown streets." Encore (PDF)
  • "With a multitude of puppets big and small, projections whimsical and terrifying and even acrobatic aerialists, there's a heightened visual component to nearly every moment of the play, including actors using fabric hanging from the space's ceiling for everything from a cocoon to a swing." StarNews (PDF)
Synopsis
A is caught in a violent storm. On a nearby island, the exiled Duke of Milan, Prospero, tells his daughter, Miranda, that he has caused the storm with his magical powers. Prospero had been banished twelve years earlier when his brother Antonio conspired with the king of Naples to become the duke instead. Prospero and Miranda are served by a spirit named Ariel and by Caliban, son of the island's previous inhabitant, the witch Sycorax. Castaways from the wreck begin to appear. First is Alonso's son Ferdinand, who immediately falls in love with Miranda. Prospero secretly approves of their love, but tests the pair by enslaving Ferdinand.
