TheTempestThe Tempest

14-16 November 2013

Directed by Paul Blinkhorn

'We are such stuff as dreams are made on.'

Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island. He is comforted by his daughter Miranda and served by his spirit Ariel and his slave Caliban. 

When Prospero raises a storm to wreck his brother and his confederates on the island, his long contemplated revenge at last seems within reach.

Imbued with a spirit of magic and the supernatural, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s late great masterpiece of forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment.
