Cast away on a magical island, an exiled duke struggles to subdue his enemies and reunite his daughter with society. In this fresh look at Shakespeare’s poetic masterpiece about revenge, romance and power, an all-female cast delivers a sharp critique on the nature of dominance and offers hope for transformation, redemption and forgiveness.
Texas State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents Shakespeare's The Tempest, directed by Bruce Turk. The production opens February 12, 2019 and runs until February 17 in the Patti Strickel Harrison Theatre.
After a distinguished professional career across the country, Bruce Turk, who graduated from Westlake High School, returned to Texas hill-country three years ago to pursue a MFA in directing from Texas State University. Turk has performed leading roles On and Off-Broadway, internationally, and at major regional theatres across the country, specializing in classical theatre, predominantly Shakespeare. He has been a resident member of Tadashi Suzuki’s Acting Company in Japan and has also worked extensively with Julie Taymor, appearing in her productions of Titus Andronicus, Juan Darien at Lincoln Center, and playing the title role in The Green Bird on Broadway.
