Boston Theatre Works
Presents “The Tempest”

Boston Theatre Works (BTW) will present a dynamic new production of Shakespeare’s moving comedy, “The Tempest,” beginning January 13, 2005 in the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts.

The production unites several Shakespeare & Company actors including Jonathan Epstein (Prospero), Allyn Burrows (Stephano), Sarah Hickler (Caliban) and Susannah Millonzi (Ariel), with Neil Casey (Trinculo) and Liz Hayes (Miranda). The production is directed by Boston Theatre Works regular Jason Slavick.

In this classic comedy, Prospero, is banished to an abandoned island by his power-hungry brother. When he seizes opportunity for retribution with a mystical storm that shipwrecks his brother and other nobles on the island, Prospero learns that he must surrender his power to regain his soul. “The Tempest” explores Shakespeare's classic themes of love, loss, vengeance and forgiveness with contemporary American themes of justice and the use and abuse of power.
