The Tempest is a play about magic, betrayal, love and forgiveness.
Set on an island somewhere near Italy, Prospero, one-time Duke of Milan and his beautiful daughter, Miranda live with a sprite called Ariel and a strange Wildman called Caliban.
Prospero is a powerful magician who creates a tempest across the seas. We see a plot to murder the King of Naples; a drunken scheme to kill Prospero; and a romance between Miranda and the King’s son, Ferdinand. In the end, everyone is forgiven and they all set sail for home.
With a mix of Alice in Wonderland and Stranger Things, this, the last of Shakespeare’s plays, captures all the magic and beauty of his mind.
