THE TEMPEST Storms Through Hole in the Wall Theater, Now thru 3/8
Even in the midst of this brutal winter, the Hole in the Wall Theater seeks to warm hearts and tickle fancies with a visually inventive new production of William Shakespeare's most magical play, The Tempest. Leave the winter weather behind and join the famous wizard Prospero on his tropical island, with his beautiful daughter, a bevy of shipwrecked nobles, a pair of drunken fools, a terrible monster, and the dreadful witch Sycorax, a character rarely seen in modern productions, but sure to haunt the audience long after the lights go down.
This comedic whirlwind blows through the theater from February 21st to March 8th. Performances are on Friday and Saturday Nights at 8:00 PM, with a Sunday matinees at 2:00 PM on March 2nd. Tickets are available by calling (860) 229-3049 or visiting The Hole in the Wall Theater website at www.hitw.org.
This fast and funny new take on Shakespeare's dark comedy weaves a tale of tricksy spirits, scheming royals, comic debauchery and sweeping romance. When the exiled magician Prospero catches the King's ship in a tempest, he brings his enemies ashore to an enchanted island where rough magic and rougher monsters weave a tapestry of chaos and suspense. Debts are paid, enchantments conjured, and love conquers all in this timeless tale of adventure.
