Rough magic and brave new worlds
For 12 years, the exiled Duke Prospero has waited for this moment: Old enemies have sailed too close to his enchanged island, and a mighty storm has forced them ashore. Now it's time to settle old scores and reclaim his former dukedom for his daughter, Miranda. Aided by supernatural powers, Porspero dispenses justice while overseeing the growing attraction between Miranda and the princely son of one of his foes. In Shakespeare's romance, sorcery and love transmute vengeance into humility and humanity, making it possible for all to return to a world made new by the power of forgiveness.
This production of "The Tempest" is part of Shakespeare for a New Generagion, a national theatre initiative sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts in cooperation with Arts Midwest.

Across the universe
Meg Murry is the quintessential square peg: a middle-school math whiz with glasses and a short temper. But when she and her strangely gifted little brother set off to find their missing father, they're catapulted across time and space to a world where being different isn't just an annoyance - it can cost you your life. Even with the help of curious otherworldly beings, Meg will have to conjure every power she can find, and then some, to put her family back together. OSF presents a new adaptation of this mind-expanding science fiction story that's still a favorite with the young and young at heart.
Special lighting and strobe effects are used during the Tesseract moments in the production.

We are family
A janitor. A software mogul. A college grad. An IRS paper-pusher. Although they live thousands of miles apart, these four people share a secret: They're recovering addicts who've found a safe haven in an online chat room. there, with liberal doses of jokes and bullying, they help each other navigate the broken terrain of their lives. But when an Iraq War vet's tragedy spills over into their cyberhome, everything changes. In this fearless, groundbreaking Pulitzer Prize-winner, worlds virtual and real unfold onstage, challenging our notions of family, forgiveness, community and courage.
