Shakespeare’s classic Filipino adaptation play “The Tempest Reimagined” starts on November 11
Witness a world-class production on the country’s stage as the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) presents a four-week play of Shakespeare’s classic Filipino adaptation —The Tempest Reimagined—starting November 11, 2016 at The PETA Theater Center in Quezon City.
The play will feature real stories of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) survivors from the perspective of the greatest playwright, William Shakespeare. The original work, The Tempest, was based on a real-life tempest in 1610 when a great storm drove the ship, Sea Adventurer, full of British colonists onto the rocks of Bermuda.
The Tempest Reimagined follows the original plot with stories from the survivors of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) who were left shocked, confused, terrified, and grief stricken while trying to find their relatives and finding the necessities to survive from the calamity.
This play will showcase great artistic talents of acclaimed artists from London, Japan, and the Philippines as they act out each scene with passion and sincerity.
Watch The Tempest Reimagined this November and discover why “love softens revenge, pity thaws revengeful hearts, [and whether] a new spirit of enlightenment and generosity can prevail—or not.”
