About this Event
2 Broughton Dr., Raleigh, NC 27695https://www.lib.ncsu.edu/events/playmakers-mobile-tempest
Utilizing music, puppets, clowning, fabric and only six actors, PlayMakers Mobile will bring Shakespeare’s The Tempest to life in an intimate and imaginative way on a tiny square of space. This fast-moving, one-hour performance is free and open to the public.
On a desolate island, the former Duke Prospero and his daughter, Miranda, have learned to live with the strange and wonderful inhabitants of the land. Exiled by his own brother for being more interested in studying magic than ruling his people, Prospero connects to the enchantments of the island and uses them to summon his enemies and seek his revenge. What ensues is a surprising tale of transformation and all must decide who and how to forgive. The Tempest is a story of love, will, reunion and mercy that questions what it means to be human.
Note: Masks requested for audience members.
