SUMMARY

Prospero’s unchallenged reign over his island has continued for over a decade, but the washing up of a boatload of Italian noblemen onto its shores looks to challenge that. With the help of his magical servant, Ariel, Prospero hopes to protect himself and his daughter Miranda from the aims of the new arrivals through his myriad of spells and tricks.

What Prospero hasn’t allowed for, however, is the power of attraction. The young, alluring Ferdinand, part of the shipwrecked cohort, knows he wants to marry Miranda from the first time he laid eyes on her. The battle of love, magic and truth grows from peaceful beginnings into a storm of its own, raging through the island.

This production hopes to capture the music, magic and romance that abound in The Tempest - Shakespeare’s complex and ethereal consideration of what it means to be both loved and betrayed, when you have never known anything else.
