The Tempest is believed to be Shakespeare’s final work. Written in 1611, it is a tale of loss and restoration that still resonates with us today. The play begins with the storm and we learn stories of loss and of violent betrayal. Through magic, all parties are brought to the island that Prospera and her daughter Miranda were marooned upon twelve years ago. We come to know more about the characters as they circle the island and Prospera brings them to her for a confrontation. Some seek violence. Others seek freedom. Some find love, others find forgiveness. The Tempest contains the famous quote: “Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep.
