Shakespeare on Digital Presents: The Tempest
June 1, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
WE’RE THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THE FIRST EVER SHAKESPEARE ON DIGITAL PERFORMANCE : “The Tempest”
*FLOURISH OF TRUMPET SOUND EFFECTS*
Gget ready for another #quaranTIME of your lives with the next performance from Shakespeare on Digital (the artist formerly known as Shakespeare on Draught). We’re bringing our brand of theatre right to your home with a live-streamed Zoom performance of THE TEMPEST!
Much like all of us rn, Prospero and her daughter Miranda are isolated af…on an island. When the scheming schemers who exiled her in the first place end up shipwrecked there, Prospero vows revenge. Love, magic, and colonialism thrive in this epic wizard vengeance piece from our guy, William Shakespeare.
As always, their shows are pay-what-you-can. This time, Shakespeare on Draught is asking for a donation to the Atlanta Artist Relief Fund, an organization doing incredible work for our community during this crisis. Visit this site to donate: https://www.gofundme.com/f/atlartsrelief
