Helen Keller:
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Carin Bratlie
Presented with an all-female cast
April 21 – May 6, 2012

In a free country, a popular political leader reaches for absolute power. Former friends must decide: loyalty or patriotism? Honor or ambition?

Blood is shed in the name of the public good, the country plunges into civil war, and a noble person faces a tragic undoing.

Critics wrote of our all-female version of The Tempest: "Masculine bravado with a maternal spirit that is at once riveting and disconcerting." - Minneapolis Star Tribune
