Gesa Power House Theatre will screen the current Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) production of “The Tempest” on Wednesday, March 22 at 6:00 p.m.
“The Tempest” is brought to life on the RSC stage in collaboration with Intel and in association with The Imaginarium Studios, featuring some of today’s most advanced technology in a bold re-imagining of Shakespeare’s magical play, and starring Simon Russell Beale. The production was filmed live in Stratford-Upon-Avon and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.
On a distant island a man waits.
Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.
Simon Russell Beale returns to the RSC after 20 years to play Prospero in a production directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran.
This film runs about 2 hours 45 minutes, including one intermission. Beer, wine, and popcorn will be available for purchase.
General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
