“The Temptest” in the park
BRATTLEBORO- Vermont Theatre Company presents “The Tempest,” Thursday, June 28 to Sunday, July 1, on the Rotary Stage at Living Memorial Park.
Directed by James Gelter, “The Tempest” tells the tale of the exiled Duke Prospero and the magic island he inhabits with his daughter Miranda. When the noblemen who wronged him sail by, Prospero with his servant Ariel, summons a storm to crash their ship and bring them to the island. Shipwrecked, King Alonso and his men believe that Alonso’s son Ferdinand is dead. But Ferdinand is alive and soon finds Miranda, who falls in love with him in an instant.
Meanwhile, Prospero’s other servant, Caliban, finds two drunk clowns and convinces them to murder his master and take the island for themselves. Prospero must seek his revenge, test his daughter’s suitor, and save himself from Caliban’s plot before the day is out.
