William Shakespeare's THE TEMPEST

Saturdays and Sundays, July 23, 24, 30, 31, August 6 & 7

Inferno Theatre presents FREE in Berkeley's lovely John Hinkel Park Amphitheatre, William Shakespeare’s THE TEMPEST, adapted, directed and designed by Giulio Cesare Perrone. 

This production investigates the destiny of theatre as it pushes theatricality to the limits, inviting the audience to abandon themselves to the magic of the island and its inhabitants. The world of this imaginary island will be created on stage through movement, music, and Shakespeare’s own elastic words and imagery.
