New World Theatre Project opens its 2012 season with a Newfoundland inspired production of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, starring Greg Malone as Prospero. In honour of the 400th anniversary of the first contact between John Guy and the Beothuk in Cupids, Newfoundland, this dramatic re-imagining is conceived and directed by Jeannette Lambermont-Morey, with a score composed by Mi’kmaq artist, Cathy Elliott, who also plays Ariel. Featuring Jake Bradbury, Courtney Brown, Neil Butler, Gabriella Colavecchio, Liam Dawson, Cathy Elliott, Jerry Etienne, Brian Marler, Stan Nochasak and Paul Rowe, with costume design by Peggy Hogan.
Believed by some to be the last play Shakespeare wrote (between 1610 – 1611), The Tempest was first published in 1623 in the First Folio.
