"The Tempest" is a magical fantasy adventure and one of Shakespeare's last plays.Doctor Deidre Onishi, the play's director, says the reason for the play is important to have during this election season.

"It's interesting in this time of political unrest to have a play about politics,” said Dr. Onishi.
