When a shipwreck brings the king of Naples and his family to a mysterious island, Prospero, the former Duke of Milan, and 15-year-old Miranda become entangled in their lives and discover love and redemption. This month, the Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival brings the enchanting story of The Tempest to life. Shakespeare's final play, The Tempest has been lauded for its dramatic structure and romantic background, yet criticized for its lack of female representation. Because of this, FlagShakes director Christine Schmidle has created a gender-swapped production to tell this story of family and forgiveness. Catch the final performances this weekend but don't wait too long; opening weekend performances sold out. Show times and ticket information at www.flagshakes.org
