Instructor: Charles McMahon

Charles McMahon, Artistic Director of Lantern Theater Company, will lead a discussion about The Tempest, the play commonly seen as Shakespeare’s farewell to the theater, which he will direct in the Lantern’s current season. In The Tempest, more than in any of Shakespeare’s other plays, art becomes a potent metaphor whose implications weave through every facet of human life. In this case Prospero’s “art” is magic, and just as in the theater, magic is the power to transform one thing into something else by force of the artist’s, or magician’s, conscious will. It is ultimately a redemptive confrontation between the lighter and the darker sides of the human psyche— and of human power—at once humbling and humanizing.

Tuition to this course includes the discussion and a ticket to see The Tempest performed by Lantern Theater Company on March 25. Please read The Tempest before attending on March 22.
