William Shakespeare's The Tempest was the next to last play the bard ever wrote. It deals with a deposed King, Prospero, who has been banished by his own brother, Antonio, to an island full of strange creatures made of both air (Ariel) and earth (Caliban). Prospero uses his significant education to master the island and its creatures, and there he rules with his virginal daughter, Miranda. But a storm at sea forces a ship carrying Antonio and others to wreck upon the shores of Prospero's island. Finally, Prospero will have to decide whether to seek terrible revenge, or offer forgiveness and, by doing so, rejoin humankind.
The cast is made up of three actors. Randolph Curtis Rand, who appeared at Burning Coal in Conor McPherson's The Seafarer and in Shakespeare's Love's Labours Lost will play Prospero and others. Adam Patterson, a Raleigh native, will play Ariel, Miranda and others. Patterson appeared at Burning Coal in To Kill A Mockingbird in 2010. Carter, a Raleigh based actor who recently appeared at Burning Coal in Shining City, will play Caliban, Trinculo and others.
