Shakepeare in Stonington THE TEMPEST
O brave new world that has such people in’t!
Stripped of his title and exiled to a fantastical island, Prospero unleashes a churning storm to shipwreck the traitorous brother who stole his dukedom. But bitter revenge is upended by newfound love in this sublime masterpiece that proves we are all "such stuff as dreams are made on."
In 2015, director Peter Richards used the magnificent landscape of Ames Farm to transport audiences to 19th-century Russia with his highly acclaimed production of The Seagull.
This summer, Ames Farm becomes an enchanted isle, “full of noises, sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.” Come and experience the thrill of live performance in the open air, with the Deer Island Thorofare as majestic backdrop.
