The Tempest

Magic, romance and a deserted island form the setting for Shakespeare’s final masterpiece. Marooned on a desert island with his daughter Miranda, Prospero has perfected his magic. He learns that his old enemies are sailing near the island and raises a tempest which brings them within his grasp. Through an enchanted tale of humour, romance and adventure, The Tempest is ultimately a story of redemption and forgiveness.

...this was brilliant... a brilliant performance from a cast that cannot be faulted —Cambridge Evening News
