Film Screening - Stephano: The True Story of Shakepeare's Shipwreck

Join us for Stephano: The True Story of Shakespeare's Shipwreck. This Hit and Run History adventure-travel documentary details the life of Mayflower pilgrim Stephen Hopkins, the only Mayflower passenger who had been to North America previously. A decade earlier, Hopkins had been aboard a Jamestown-bound ship that wrecked on Bermuda, inspiring Shakespeare's final play, The Tempest

Shot on location in Plymouth, Massachusetts, England, Bermuda, and Jamestown, the intrepid Hit and Run History crew retraces Hopkins' life criss-crossing the emerging Atlantic world. 

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Abington Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. For further information, contact Deborah Grimmett at 781-982-2139 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
