"Caliban's Island explores the struggle between wishes, dreams and wisdom. Bring the entire family to this witty, whimsical celebration of language and life. Part Peter and the Starcatcher, part Shakespeare, Burbano writes with a unique voice all her own. " —John DiAntonio, Creede Repertory Theatre Executive Director

Characters from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and The Tempest intertwine as a pair of twins are shipwrecked on an island, encountering a half-human â€śmonster,â€ť fairies and a young girl with magical powers who has been there since babyhood. Mortals will struggle with the magical; loyalty will wrestle with love, and wishes, dreams, and wisdom will collide, leaving no one unchanged.
