Synopsis

'The magic in The Tempest is real ... It contains a great many unanswered questions' Margaret Atwood

A storm rages. Prospero and his daughter watch from their desert island as a ship carrying the royal family is wrecked. Miraculously, all on board survive. Plotting, mistaken identities, bewitching love and enchantment follow as the travellers explore this mysterious place of spirits and monsters, and discover that all is not as it seems. Shakespeare's late, great play is a work filled with marvels, music and strangeness, fully exploiting the power of language and the magic of theatre.

The Tempest
Caliban is innocent
Not my favourite from Shakespeare but still a memorable piece of work from him. I love Caliban and I just think he deserves better
