Starring Sergio RubiniEnnio FantastichiniTeresa Saponangelo

Loosely adapted from Eduardo De Filippo's Arte della commedia and translation of Shakespeare's The Tempest. Members of the Camorra on the run and actors seeking for authority meet after a shipwreck on an island-prison. The theatre turns into a free zone where everyone may not be able to recover their social role but for sure their humanity. Somebody can even get love back. Shakespeare and Eduardo De Filippo blend together in a picaresque comedy full of coup de théâtre.

Followed by a Q&A with director Gianfranco Cabiddu, moderated by Valeria Orani (Umanism NY)
