Stormy weather: The Tem­pest

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Wil­liam Shake­speare’s pre­oc­cu­pa­tion with dys­func­tional fam­i­lies re­mains strong in The Tem­pest, con­sid­ered by many to be the last play he wrote alone, around 1610. Pros­pero, the ex­iled duke of Mi­lan, raises his daugh­ter Mi­randa on an is­land in­hab­ited by en­chanted spir­its, whose magic he claims as his own. He lures An­to­nio, the brother he hates, to the is­land by con­jur­ing up a storm, hop­ing to ex­pose him and re­gain his right­ful place in so­ci­ety, among other machi­na­tions. Santa Fe Shake­speare So­ci­ety presents The Tem­pest at Monte del Sol Char­ter School (4157 Walk­ing Rain Road), open­ing Fri­day, July 10, with ad­di­tional per­for­mances Fri­days, Satur­days, and Sun­days through Aug. 16. All shows be­gin at 6 p.m. Tick­ets, avail­able at the door, are $10 to $20 on a slid­ing scale. For in­for­ma­tion call 505-490-6271. — J.L.
