About the Show

THE TEMPEST. A new 75-minute adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy about revenge, redemption and forgiveness. Prospero, the deposed Duke of Milan, has been marooned on an isle with his daughter, Miranda, in a coup precipitated by his traitorous brother Antonio and the wily Queen of Naples. But Prospero is a wizard, on a par with Hogwarts' Dumbledore, and he conjures a storm to bring his enemies to judgement on this very isle of wonder and enchantment. His enemies are put through trials, his daughter becomes engaged, his island subjects are freed, and Prospero finds the true power of the most magical human gift, Love.
