Jun 4 - Jun 6
Cornerstone Theater Company arrives at Z Space for a stop on their epic, year-long, ten-city, decade-in-the making, once-in-a-lifetime, world premiere theatrical road-trip across the greatest state in the nation! In California: The Tempest, “What’s past is prologue,” as playwright Alison Carey’s adaptation of The Tempest meets the challenges of the Golden State head-on in this traveling experience that conjures love, disaster, revenge, forgiveness & music (all that you would expect from Shakespeare!); mixed with earthquakes, drought, overdevelopment, food equity, state politics, fracking and immigration policy (all that you would expect from California!) as Prosper, Minerva, Caliban and Californians from across the state yearn to find the commonality in our diversity and imagine a healthy and inclusive future for California!’’
