    Marblehead Little Theatre Presents The Tempest

    The Tempest is widely believed to be the last play Shakespeare wrote, and is one of the most difficult to classify. The play deftly weaves comedy, tragedy, and romance together as we see King Alonso of Naples and his entourage wash up on a strange island following the wreck of the ship carrying them home from Tunis to Italy. The island is inhabited by the magician Prospero, formerly the Duke of Milan, who has deliberately conjured the storm and marooned the noblemen in a plot to enact vengeance on his usurping brother, Antonio. Meanwhile, a monster, a jester, and a drunken butler hatch a plan to depose Prospero and rule the island themselves.

    The Tempest is a play filled with magic, music, laughter, intrigue, and danger. With it, Shakespeare explores themes of freedom, revenge, repentance, and forgiveness.
