Presented by:

PlayMakers Repertory Company

The professional theatre in residence at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


On a desolate island, the former Duke Prospero and his daughter Miranda have learned to live with the strange and wonderful inhabitants of the land. Exiled by his own brother for being more interested in studying magic than ruling his people, Prospero connects to the enchantments of the island and uses them to summon his enemies and seek his revenge. What ensues is a surprising tale of transformation and all must decide who and how to forgive. The Tempest is a story of love, will, reunion and mercy that questions what it means to be human.

Utilizing music, puppets, clowning, fabric, and only 6 actors, the PlayMakers Mobile Unit will bring The Tempest to life in an intimate and imaginative way on a tiny square of space, reminding us that "we are such stuff as dreams are made on."
