Produced by Round House Theatre in collaboration with Folger Theatre
“You’ve never seen a ‘Tempest’ like this. Enormously entertaining … gorgeously performed.” – Chicago Tribune
Shakespeare's tale of betrayal, reconciliation, and love is part fairy tale, part romance–and all magic. In this imaginative staging by Aaron Posner and Teller, Prospero's island transforms into a traveling tent show of trickery and amazement. The production "awakens ... a sense of pleasurable, almost childlike wonder" (New York Times). After sold-out runs across the country, The Tempest makes its regional premiere at Round House Theatre.
Performance location: Round House Theatre, 4545 E W Hwy, Bethesda, MD 20814
