Description: Miranda Premieres in Greensboro Prior to New York City Performances. The adult daughter of Shakespeare’s Prospero, Miranda, has blocked all memories of her childhood. To help her recall her earlier years, Prospero relates the story of his time in the Americas. The story unfolds against the backdrop of the Lost Colony and the destruction of the Native American world, as Prospero chronicles his love for the Powhatan princess, Ariel, and their child, Caliban. This staged reading of Miranda, a sequel to Shakespeare’s The Tempest, incorporates Greensboro’s Abenaki culture as it brings to life our nation’s early history in its premiere performance. Community members will have the opportunity to participate in the production; audiences will have an opportunity to offer feedback and engage with the performance prior to its New York City debut.Written by the author of The Elephant Man and produced posthumously, Miranda is a treasure to discover. The reading is presented by Tony-nominated Marla Schaffel, Artist-in-Residence at The Mirror Theater in New York City, and directed by Fichandler and Tony Award nominee Sabra Jones, Artistic Director of The Mirror. Miranda is brought to Vermont by the Greensboro Arts Alliance and Residency, striving to benefit the community of Greensboro by providing year-round cultural and artistic opportunities to the residents of Greensboro and its surrounding areas.
