The Tempest

A production by Theatre Group
The Tempest

Prospero, the great sorcerer, has had his dukedom usurped from him by his own brother in league with the King and was cast out onto the open sea with nothing but his daughter, Miranda not three years old, and his books

They found themselves stranded upon a mysterious island alone but for Caliban, the forgotten offspring of a spurned witch. Now, more than a decade on, even the spirits of the island find themselves enslaved to Prospero and the very people who once stripped him of his life are sailing past the island. He raises a great Tempest to shipwreck them on the island where they can do nothing but fall into his machinations.
