Print Room at the Coronet: A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur
The Tempest is the world in two hours.
Through some of his most beautiful poetry, the great playwright holds an unsparing mirror up to nature, giving us an extraordinary reflection of humanity: the growing pains of adolescence and late middle age; masters and servants; bullies with and without a conscience; and, our fear of loneliness and the future. The Tempest’s diagnosis of existence, of the problem of being in the world, feels as sharp today as it would have felt in 1608 when the play first appeared.
In his final masterpiece on the struggle to remain idealistic, Shakespeare leaves us with the hope that the younger generation can do better.
