Miranda from Stormville is Shakespeare's The Tempest loosely retold in a small town in the wilds of New Jersey. Miranda Milano is young and trapped in the middle of nowhere, caring for her protective father in his state of slow mental decline. When a violent storm brings soft-hearted Will Ferdinand to her doorstep, what they share in their few hours together will change both their lives forever.

Adam Bertocci is an award-winning writer and filmmaker. His work has been praised by Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, The New Republic, GQ, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Back Stage, Broadway World, E!, Maxim, IGN, Film Threat and more. His first play was the worldwide viral sensation Two Gentlemen of Lebowski, now published by Simon & Schuster, the acclaimed premiere of which (produced in New York by DMTheatrics / Horse Trade) sold out, extended and sold out again. Two Gentlemen has also received acclaim from the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Folger Shakespeare Library; AOL Pop Eater hailed Bertocci as "a Shakespeare adaptation expert". Miranda from Stormville marks his debut as a dramatic playwright and his long-awaited return to the work of the Bard.
