Free Theatre in the Parks

CCTC celebrates 11 years of bringing classic plays to a park near you!

THE TEMPEST

by William Shakespeare

directed by Allen Radway

 

The season begins on a magical island where the wronged Prospero, a self-directed and self-taught Magus, and his daughter, Miranda, have been forced into exile by his usurping brother, Antonio. Prospero, the former Duke of Milan, has become ruler of this small island, forcing its inhabitants to do his bidding.  Directed by Allen Radway (director of CCTC’s 2012 OUR TOWN, and Producing Artistic Director of Simpatico Theatre), this outdoor production, charting Prospero’s journey of self-discovery and redemption will enchant audiences as they witness Prospero luring those responsible for his exile to a remote island where they become vulnerable to the whims of his injured pride.  Featuring respected, veteran actor, David Howey (formerly of the Royal Shakespeare Company and Royal National Theatre) and a cast of 12, this production will make the journey from revenge to forgiveness impossible to forget.
