Synopsis:

On a distant island a man waits. Robbed of his position, power, and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will.  When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men that wronged him. Creating a vast, magical storm, he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake, they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.  The Tempest will be the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for young theatre-goers and families.
