One of William Shakespeare's final plays, The Tempest tells the story of banished magician and former duke Prospero, who has been exiled on an island with his daughter Miranda for years. He plots revenge on the brother who usurped his throne with the help of the magical island creatures in his thrall and takes us on a tangled journey of magic, wonder, and forgiveness where we find out "we are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep." Bring a blanket or chair and a picnic dinner, or grab dinner at one of the fantastic food trucks on site, and join the Nashville Shakespeare Festival as they present this classic tale the whole family will enjoy.
