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.

USER (11Jan01): This is an innovative production. It shows a different side to the play. I am studying the text for A-Level Theatre Studies, and the production brought it to life and helped with my understanding and enjoyment of the text. I would reccomend this to everyone!
