About This Event

This mordantly funny adaptation tilts The Tempest on its head, approaching the story of Prospero and Caliban from a post-colonial perspective. Written in 1968, this seldom-staged work takes on new urgency in today’s world.\n\nFollowing the plot of The Tempest, this story focuses on the original inhabitants of the island prior to Prospero and Miranda’s arrival, Caliban and Ariel, who have both been enslaved after his arrival.
