Shakespeare’s magic-filled exploration of the politics of colonialism erupts with power and relevance in this one-man spectacle. The play draws startling parallels between Shakespeare’s final work and the post-colonial “New World.” Prospero, rightful Duke of Milan, shipwrecks his conniving brother by means of a magical storm.
As the befuddled travelers encounter the ephemeral Ariel, the earthy Caliban, and Prospero’s sheltered daughter Miranda, old rivalries and new romances take root. In another time and place, one man’s voyage from Cuba to the U.S. begins to echo the events and politics of Shakespeare’s play.
