The Old Man has kept his post as the sole caretaker of the moon for as long as he or his wife, the Old Woman, can remember. When she is drawn away by a mysterious melody sparking memories of their shared past, the Old Man must decide between duty and routine, and love and adventure.

Luckily for audiences everywhere, he chooses the latter, and what follows is an imaginative sea-faring epic, encompassing apocalyptic storms, civil wars, leviathans of the deep, and cantankerous ghosts, as well as the fiercest obstacle of all: change.

"This is a story of time and tides and quests, the sort of fable on which mythologies and religions are founded . . . asks us to appreciate the finer arts of wild storytelling, while speaking to the childish mind in all of us." – The New York Times

Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music.

Prospero, the former and rightful Duke of Milan, washed up on the shores of this island with his daughter, Miranda, many years ago. On this day, Prospero uses his magic and the powers of his spirit-servant, Ariel, to conjure a storm, the tempest, to shipwreck a passing vessel.

Aboard this wrecked ship is a group of royals: Alonso, the King of Naples; his son Ferdinand, the prince; his treacherous brother, Sebastian; and Prospero's treacherous brother, Antonio, among other nobles and mariners.

Annie Nations, an indomitable Appalachian widow of 79, lives on her mountain farm with the acerbic ghost of her husband, Hector. Her tranquility is threatened by a brash real estate developer who wants to turn her land into a vacation resort and by concern over her son, Dillard, a country singer who has come home with two stranded children because his wife has run away.

Annie's battle to decide her future takes her through some funny, touching, and magical flashbacks to her life with Hector. Played on Broadway by Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy, this couple offers a staunchly affirmative tribute to country folk.

"The play quivers with laughter and stabs the heart." - Time
