The Tempest by William Shakespeare
Directed by Leo Lion
On a wooded island populated by sprites and spirits, an old exiled alchemist hides away, plotting his revenge. A terrible storm wrecks a nearby ship, tossing the surviving passengers onto the isle.
Firebird revisits Shakespeare’s final comedy, The Tempest, bringing to the forefront the ties that keep us tethered and pull us asunder. From servitude to love, from debt to friendship to family, the ways in which we are fastened to each other are sometimes the only way we can find ourselves. Meanwhile, the ways in which we are bound, and the baggage we tie to ourselves, make us ever heavier and pull us down toward the depths. On this visit to Prospero’s Isle, we ask you: What do you hold onto when the storm hits? And will it hold you?
