Curtain Call Simplicity, style strong points for ‘Tempest’

Posted: Friday, August 1, 2014 12:45 am

Clear Creek Community Theatre’s production of “The Tempest” is a simple and stylish show that highlights the power of forgiveness.

Believed to be the final play Shakespeare wrote alone, “The Tempest” is a dense and often difficult play with three distinct but interwoven plot lines. There is the romance between Prospero’s daughter, Miranda, and Ferdinand, the slaves Caliban and Ariel’s attempts to free themselves from Prospero, and the machinations of Antonio, brother of Prospero, who continually plots for power. Linking all three is Prospero’s use of magic and power to manipulate others, his quest for revenge at being banished and his ultimate forgiveness of his brother and those who plotted against him.
