La Tempestad
By Larry Loebell
Directed by Eric Parness
October 7- 30, 2005

A contemporary romantic fantasy by Larry Loebell (a Philadelphia-based playwright with strong ties to Philadelphia's InterAct Theatre Company) sets Prospero on the tropical island of Vieques, Puerto Rico in self-imposed exile where he practices the antiquarian arts. After a stormy crossing, three couples - including Prospero's daughter Miranda and her fiancé Ferdinand - are swept up in the island's history of passion, politics and magic. As U.S. military pilots practice for the invasion of Iraq in the unpredictable skies overhead, each couple ponders the prospects of marriage and tests the limits of their love.

a new adaptation of
The Tempest
Adapted and Directed By Victor Maog

The Tempest is Shakespeare's magical and mysterious final play. It tells the story of a banished Prospero who controls his island-prison, its visitors, and its inhabitants by mixing reality and illusion to create a world in which nothing is as it seems. Victor Maog's new ninety minute adaptation, in which three actors play all of Shakespeare's roles, concentrates on the play's themes of imprisonment, longing, and love.
