Statesboro High Presents Shakespeare's, "The Tempest"
The Statesboro High Drama Department invites you to see Shakespeare's, The Tempest, Thursday, Nov. 20, 7 p.m. in the SHS Auditorium. General admission tickets are $5 and are available at the door prior to the performance. This is the seventh time that SHS students have brought one of Shakespeare's master works to the stage.
The play is set on a remote island, where Prospera, the rightful Duchess of Milan, plots to restore her daughter, Miranda, to her rightful place using illusion and skillful manipulation. She conjures up a storm, the eponymous tempest, to lure her usurping brother, Antonio, and the complicit King Alonso of Naples to the island.
The Tempest was Shakespeare's last major play, and it is widely thought to have been inspired by the real life loss of a fleet of ships, including a new flagship, The Sea Venture, in July 1610, in a hurricane off the coast of present day Bermuda. The islands had not yet been discovered and later became a British Colony. The devastating news of the loss of these ships and their cargo, which was meant to help save the floundering colony of Jamestown, was as impactful to England as the later sinking of the Titanic.
