Trinity Rep, in partnership with Rhode Island Latino Arts (RILA), will continue its annual tradition of offering free, bilingual theater throughout the Providence area during summer 2018. The 90-minute performance will tour venues in Providence, Pawtucket, and Central Falls, including parks, libraries, and cultural centers, for families and people of all ages.

The Tempest

By William Shakespeare
Translated by Orlando Hernandez
Directed by Tatyana-Marie Carlo

Trinity Rep and Rhode Island Latino Arts partner once again to present a new 90-minute bilingual adaptation of Shakespeare’s moving and magical play, The Tempest. A not-so-accidental storm causes a shipwreck on a mysterious island, populated only by the deposed duke Prospero, his daughter, and magical spirits. What starts out as Prospero’s pursuit of vengeance becomes a fantastical and whimsical story of love and reconciliation.

Sponsored in part by the Providence Tourism Council





and the Department of Arts, Culture, and Tourism for the City of Providence.
