Directed by Leah Adcock-StarrWhen you’re stranded on an enchanted island for twelve long years with only your daughter and magical spirits for company, it turns out you have plenty of time for plotting revenge. Enter Prospero, the erstwhile Duke of Milan who was usurped by his brother Antonio. Prospero’s ire at his brother is given glorious life when Antonio and his crew sail too close to the island, and with the aid of his magical spirit Ariel, he conjures a supernatural storm to shipwreck the passengers. But his plot goes awry as the island becomes a wondrous playground for romance, trickery, and spectacle, ultimately leading to forgiveness and reconciliation.
Leah Adcock-Starr returns to Wooden O following her direction of Romeo and Juliet in 2019 with a Pacific Northwest-inspired, sea-shanty take on The Tempest. Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Wooden O by bringing food and friends to this feelgood show that makes the perfect summer treat.
