THE TEMPEST – Free in Carroll Park
Jun 8, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm
FREE! The award-winning theatre company Smith Street Stage is coming back to Brooklyn this summer for its 7th year of outdoor Shakespeare in Carroll Park. This year’s production is a gender-bent twist on The Tempest, starring Kate Ross as Prospero.
As The Tempest begins, the magician Prospero sends out a storm to shipwreck the traitorous men who once stole her throne and exiled her to a desolate island. When the island’s mysteries entrap and confound the men, Prospero wreaks her revenge. Meanwhile, her daughter Miranda discovers the “brave new world” of true love. The Tempest is a world of enchantment and storytelling not to be missed.
The show is free – no tickets needed! Come by yourself, with a date, or with your family. Children of all ages are welcome.
Limited chairs and ground seating are provided, or bring your own seating with you.
