The Tempest

by Terrance McArthur

There’s a storm a-brewing at the Fresno Soap Co., a veritable “Tempest.”
I love Shakespeare, and I’m super-fond of The Tempest, one of his last plays. As a child, I remember watching Roddy McDowell on the television as an ice-crystaled Ariel, the airy, positive servant of Prospero, the magician and ruler of the island.

The Tempest is one of Shakespeare’s last major plays, and one of my favorites (I have some vague childhood memories of the 1960 TV version with Maurice Evans, Richard Burton, Lee Remick, Roddy McDowall, and Tom Poston—my first introduction to the works of William Shakespeare). This is the final production of the Woodward Shakespeare Festival’s tenth season.
