Online Stream

Prospera and her daughter Miranda have been marooned on an abandoned island space station for the last 12 years. The time has come for Prospera to seek her revenge. Though they must remain isolated while aboard the ship, Prospera uses her own magic along with the magic of the island in an attempt to reclaim what is rightfully hers. This production will use the original text as the All-Stars continue to spread the magic of Shakespeare during our own time of isolation.

"...The genderblind-cast actors display inventive solutions to their limited scenic options-Christine Chang carries out Ferdinand's lumberjack duties schlepping a sheet of plywood, for example-in addition to deftly analytical line readings. Lauren Miller's Prospera and Hannah Boutilier's Miranda anchor their filial discussions in a mother-daughter mode immediately recognizable by modern audiences, while Lauren Emily's Ariel revels in impish glee more suited to the mischievous Puck of that other pastoral realm."
