#SHAKESPEARESSH*TSTORM

Friday, Apr 8, 2022 at 7:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

With director Lloyd Kaufman in person

Dir. Lloyd Kaufman. 2020, 94 mins. With Lloyd Kaufman, Kate McGarrigle, Erin Patrick Miller, Monique Dupree, Abraham Sparrow. Masters of disreputable cinema Troma Entertainment and legendary director Lloyd Kaufman take on the Bard in this depraved adaptation of The Tempest. Kaufman assumes the role of Prospero, here a disgraced mad scientist who exacts revenge on the people who betrayed him by luring them to the strangest place on Earth: Tromaville, New Jersey! #SHAKESPEARESSH*TSTORM (aka Shakespeare’s Sh*tstorm) is every bit as sardonic, biting, crude, and hilarious as all Troma films, but also impresses as a bittersweet celebration of independent cinema and Kaufman’s mad, illustrious career.
