The Tempest is Shakespeare’s most direct engagement with America. Journey to Jamestown Island to find archaeological evidence of the voyage that may have inspired Shakespeare’s play, walk with Gonzalo to consider the promise and pitfalls of planting a “commonwealth” in a new world, and return home to find a character from Shakespeare’s play on New Jersey’s own flag.
