More Information about The Tempest

"We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep."

The Tempest is part political allegory and part fantastical tale of strange creatures and otherworldly powers. Full of humour, enchantment and magical possibility, at the play's heart is a tender portrayal of paternal love and a touching depiction of an unsocialised young woman's first real encounter with the world. Twelve years before the opening of the play, Prospero, a learned magician, has been deposed as Duke of Milan by his brother Antonio and fellow conspirators. Cast out to sea, Prospero and his young daughter Miranda have been washed ashore on a remote island. There they have lived while Miranda grows up with only two other creatures for company - Prospero's shape-shifting sprite-servant, Ariel, and a brutish half-monster, Caliban. Aware that his enemies of old are sailing close to his island, at the play's opening, Prospero magically conjures a sea-storm to wreck them on his shores. Finding themselves washed up in a strange land, the shipwrecked courtiers and members of their retinue - including a drunken cook and a hapless jester - undergo a series of unexpected trials, causing each of them to reveal more about themselves. Having brought those who wronged him in the past to his island, and with the magical help of Ariel, Prospero has the power to deal with them however he chooses. But will he punish or forgive? And how will he ensure both the future happiness of his daughter and his own future peace?

What people are saying about The Tempest

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tempest It was different and interesting, I loved moving round with the actors and being fully involved with them. The actors were brilliant, so expressive and very amusing. Ariel was my favourite, she moved just as I imagined, beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful production an enthralling production that made the most of the setting,I think making the audience move engaged us much more and it was amazing to be suddenly aware of an actor standing next to you. The scenes inside the church were so dramatic! The comic acts were tremendous and the actors engaged the young audience expertly.
