Widely considered Shakespeare's greatest work, The Tempest has long captivated audiences with its magic, romance and tragic comedy. However beneath its fantastical surface, there lies a tumultuous clash between genders. In One Word More, this experimental production taps into that dialogue by reimaging the relationship between two significant character foils: Prospero, the title male character who uses his magic for good and Sycorax, an evil witch and mother of the monster Caliban. Exploring the dynamics of isolation, communication and power, One Word More unravels the historical context behind the silencing of women's voices. Catch this refreshing take on The Tempest when this new adaptation comes to D.C.'s Mead Theatre Lab.
