The Tempest

Acting Up (in Acadiana) dedicates its season and their production of The Tempest to Ricky Briggs. Finding ourselves in ever-divisive socio-political times, The Tempest ponders distinguishing men from monsters, the desire to rule, power relationships, and ultimately surrendering power for the hope of the future. Our concept illuminates the feminine elements of mother earth, as well as the importance of books and intellectualism.
