Dandelion Productions is proud to announce the return of Connecticut Free Shakespeare to the outdoor stages of Connecticut's summer theater programming. This year, CFS stages a re-telling of William Shakespeare's The Tempest for four performances only from Thursday July 19 through Sunday July 22 at 6:30 PM on the grounds of the University of Bridgeport, on the patio of the Arnold Bernhard Arts & Humanities Center, 84 Iranistan Ave...

"I wanted to do The Tempest because I'm always interested in exploring relevant themes in Shakespeare's plays. In Tempest, the ideas of revenge and forgiveness offered a perfect opportunity to unify our summer Shakespeare with our new program, BRIDGE, that I began formulating last year. We are so lucky that the same cast that just toured our BRIDGE venues this spring including supportive housing communities, a prison, a high school, and a home for the elderly, are able to now take the stage in a slightly fuller adaptation and offer their insights from their experiences through the lens of their characters. It's been really rewarding for all of us, and we can't wait to share The Tempest with our audience."- Ellen Lieberman, Artistic Director
