Set on a remote island where Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, plots to restore his daughter, Miranda, to her rightful place using illusion and skillful manipulation. He conjures up a storm, the eponymous tempest, to lure his usurping brother Antonio and the complicit King Alonso of Naples to the island. There, his machinations bring about the revelation of Antonio’s lowly nature, the redemption of the King, and the marriage of Miranda to Alonso’s son, Ferdinand.
The play is directed by theater arts teacher Allison Martell in her final production at the high school.
Performances will be in the Groton-Dunstable High School Black Box on Friday, April 11 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 12 at 2 and 7 p.m.
Tickets cost $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors.
