The Tempest - presented by Southwest Shakespeare Co.

The Tempest is Shakespeare’s fantastical imagining inspired by the real life shipwreck of The Sea Venture, one of the British fleet lost off the coast of The Burmudas in 1609 – the Fleet was on its way to the new Jamestown settlement in Virginia.  Spirits, mythic creatures and magic abound. Right now we are watching Shakespeare’s alleged first play – by comparison – The Tempest – It is thought to be the last play Shakespeare wrote on his own in 1610-11. 

Performances: Feb. 25, Feb 26, Feb. 27, Mar. 5, Mar. 10, Mar. 12, Mar. 13, and Mar. 19 (times vary; see site for availability)
