The Tempest archiveProspero, Duke of Milan, his dukedom usurped by his brother Antonio, is put to sea with his daughter Miranda and some magical books smuggled in by his loyal councillor Gonzalo. The sea casts them up on an island where Prospero, exercising his magical powers, makes a home for himself and Miranda. One day a great storm, which Prospero has conjured, breaks up a passing ship and delivers to him the members of his usurping court. Treacherous brother, fellow conspirators and old friend alike come under Prospero's spell. Shakespeare's last play. A powerful, physical production, performed by the Unicorn’s acting ensemble, brings classic characters to life. Music and sound combine with Shakespeare’s words to create a world of enchantment and adventure. Exploring the perspectives of the play’s young characters, this ideal first experience of The Tempest will also reveal an extraordinary play afresh to everyone. Age 9+
