Rough Magic



Theatre Arcturus
Phillip Psutka

Set on a mystical island, ROUGH MAGIC is a play that follows the innocent beginnings and volatile consequences of a relationship between two unlikely beings: Ariel, an airy sprite; and Caliban, a ground-dwelling mortal. An intricate weaving of aerial arts and an original script written in blank verse, the show confronts ideas of freedom, and how we relate to others who are different from us, through a story inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
