Shakespeare in the Parks Tour: The Tempest at National Harbor, Plaza Stage

Friday, June 30, 2023

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission's Arts and Cultural Heritage Division is proud to announce our ten-year anniversary celebration tour with the show that started it all, The Tempest, directed by founding Artistic Director Christopher Dwyer. This 1980s-infused tale follows Prospero, stranded on a deserted island in the Mediterranean with his daughter Miranda, who narrowly escapes his evil brother. He now comes to grips with a life he left behind and whether to enact revenge on his brother who has just washed up on shore. Complete with magic, faeries, and physical storytelling, this fast-paced 90-minute outdoor adventure is perfect for the entire family. Bring your lawn chair, and a picnic, and enjoy the Bard under the stars.
