September 8: Shakespeare in the Park – The Tempest

Date : September 8, 2024 2:00 pm To September 8, 2024 5:00 pm

All are invited to join us in celebrating 42 years of Free Shakespeare in the Park! Since 1983, as part of SF Shakes’ mission to make Shakespeare accessible to all, we’ve brought our Free Shakes production to audiences around the SF Bay Area; no tickets or Shakespeare experience required.

Location: Jerry Garcia Amphitheater at McLaren Park in San Francisco.

Thought to be Shakespeare’s last solo written play, The Tempest tells the tale of a father (Prospero) and daughter (Miranda) set adrift to sea by the jealous machinations of Prospero’s brother. On an island inhabited with magical creatures, Prospero uses magic to rule the land, until a tempest washes ashore Prospero’s brother and co-conspirators. Complete with clownish shipwrecked sailors, The Tempest explores themes of revenge and forgiveness and asks the audience to find the humanity in all the characters they meet.

RSVP below and we’ll reach out to you closer to the performance date to coordinate our gathering point.
