Prospero and his teenage daughter, Miranda live on a remote island. Their only companions are Ariel, a magical spirit and island native, Caliban. Prospero was originally Duke of Milan, but his position was usurped by his brother Antonio.

The play opens with Antonio, Alonso, and several of their retainers on a ship in a great storm, the tempest. Unbeknownst to them, the storm is the work of Prospero, who aims to shipwreck them on his island. Washed ashore, Prospero plans to regain his position as Duke of Milan. Join us as we watch Prospero use magic and trickery to succeed in restoring his dukedom
