The Tempest

  • Lee Center for the Arts 901 12th Avenue Seattle, WA, 98122 United States (map)

Come adventure on an island alive with magic, revenge and finally forgiveness. The Tempest by William Shakespeare is known as his most entertaining and poignant play; a romantic comedy and the last play he wrote.  The civilized find themselves confronting their own wickedness on an island where forces of nature, power and mystery conspire and unite to reveal the deepest truths. 

A punishing storm at sea begins this tale about the outcome of betrayal, when an exiled duke uses dark powers to wreck the ship on which sails with the King and those betrayers.  Not a soul perishes, and instead a romance is born between the royal magician's daughter and the Kings son.  

But there are more plots afoot: drunken butlers, a spiteful island monster and supernatural creatures to carry out the twists and turns that carry us through this magical world to the sweet surrender found in the truest love at the end.  

Come Celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Lee Center and see Shakespeares gorgeous play. THE TEMPEST will also tour to the Merc Theatre in Twisp, WA.
