About

In Shakespeare's final solo work, he tells a tale of magic, revenge, and ultimately the power of forgiveness.  Prospera, the Duchess of Milan, is loses her power and place in society and is cast away with her young daughter to an island by her own brother.  With her, Prospera is able to take her books, and there on the island she refines her art of magic. As all of her enemies sail by the island Prospera summons a violent storm wrecking their ship, and stranding them on her island.

From there Prospera and her legions of magical creatures and nymphs guide the shipwrecked crew to a final confrontation in hopes that the duchess can regain what is rightfully her's.  Join the students of the Dover Shakespeare Academy for their presentation of one of Shakespeare's most original works, filled with laughter, vibrant costumes, and some of Shakespeare's most poignant verse.
