The Tempest is often thought of as a show about endings. It is one of Shakespeare’s last plays and it does deal with mortality and loss of power. But it is also a show about beginnings, the kind that you only get by shucking off the burden of the past and finding freedom in the future. This Alchemy Punk version came about after the founders of The Accidental Shakespeare Company took in a showing of Julie Taymor’s film version of the play.
