Brown / Trinity Rep M.F.A. Programs Present The Tempest

The Jamestown Arts Center is thrilled to announce the continuation of our partnership with the Brown/Trinity Rep MFA Programs with this fourth annual presentation of two Shakespeare plays.

“Watch out he’s winding the watch of his wit, by and by it will strike.”

When a king and his party’s ship are destroyed in a tempest storm, they find themselves stranded on an island ruled by Prospero, a man they betrayed years ago. Prospero harnesses mystical powers and the supernatural to get revenge while his daughter falls in love with one of the shipwrecked men. One of Shakespeare’s last works, The Tempest is a love letter to comedy, magic, romance, and art.
