Eastham 400 Committee and Eastham Historical Society will co-sponsor the  documentary, Stephano: The True Story of Shakespeare's Shipwreck. Watch the trailer here:


The one hour film follows the story of Stephen Hopkins, the only passenger who had been to North American previously. A decade earlier, he was aboard a Jamestown-bound ship that wrecked on Bermuda, and inspired Shakespeare's final play, The Tempest.


Shot on location in England, Bermuda, Virginia and New England, the production will first broadcast on Rhode Island PBS and is scheduled for showings in February at the Pilgrim Memorial Hall in Plymouth, the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster, and the Folger Shakespeare Library in DC, with more. Coinciding with the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage, public interest is bound to be piqued.
