by Susan Gayle Todd

March 29 - April 4, 2019, William Inge Memorial Theatre

In a regional premiere, Susan Gayle Todd’s prequel to William Shakespeare’s The Tempest tells the poignant story of the mother of the “servant-monster” Caliban. This tragedy imagines the life of the witch Sycorax as an Algerian healer who rises to power only to be scapegoated by powerful men.
TW: This production includes inferences to physical and sexual abuse, female circumcision, and a scene of sexual violence. It is not appropriate for all audiences.

Our 2018-19 season is sponsored by Truity Credit Union. The University Theatre is partially funded by the KU Student Senate Activity Fee.
