Midsommer Flight will mark its 8th year as an Arts Partner in Chicago’s parks with The Tempest. The company has an exciting vision to bring the play’s mysterious island alive with otherworldly production elements that will mix well with the outdoor environments. One of Shakespeare’s best known plays, The Tempest explores youth and age, finding fulfillment, and the circle of life and death. Come early and bring a picnic! All performances are FREE and open to the public. Donations are gratefully accepted.
