Our version of The Tempest attacks the assumption of American exceptionalism. We live in an era where America's supposed to be "great again," but that greatness is based on subjugation of disadvantaged people and exploitation of national fears. Prospero's blindness to his own sense of entitlement - over a state he abandoned and an island he exploited - is at the crux of the problems within the entire play. This production will involve incidental acoustic music and song.

Directed by David Harewood. Cast: Prospera- Susan Wismar, Caliban- Christopher Casanova Jones, Miranda- Hannah Roth, Gonzala- Wilma Hatton, Sebastian- Casey Merkey, Antonia- Kasey Meininger, Alonso- Michael Neff, Ferdinand- Tom Murdock, Stefano- Tony Ludovico, Trincula- Heather Gorby, Boatswain- Cory Velazco, Ariel/Iris- Christina Yoho, Ariel/Ceres- Dakota Thorn, Ariel/Juno- Shanelle Marie.
