“And then, in dreaming, the clouds methought would open and show riches, ready to drop upon me, that when I waked, I cried to dream again.” Join Say Yes! Collective for a reimagining of William Shakespeare’s beloved classic, told through the eyes of an all-female cast, set in a modern women’s prison. Part mother, sorceress, and rightful Duchess of Milan, Prospero and her daughter Miranda are sentenced away from their home, setting in motion a supernatural storm of intrigue, passion, and power. In a world where fate, dreams, and magic are intertwined, “The Tempest” tests the limits of our deepest dreams, our darkest fears, and how far we’re wiling to go to change the course of our lives—with eleven fierce women at the helm.
