Situated on an island, Prospero opens the play by using his supernatural powers to conjure a storm, causing the wreck of a passing ship. Among those who become stranded on the island are his evil brother, a young heartthrob, the Queen of Naples and a drunken Butler. They soon encounter the impish Ariel, and Caliban, a fish-like monster. Written with a superb balance of comedy, cunning and confusion, The Tempest is a fascinating fairy-tale which is sure to enchant and delight.
Set in the idyllic Mona Vale gardens, this is a chance to lay out the picnic rug and soak up the early evening sun. The show will cater to young and old, as this is Shakespeare in its most viewer-friendly form!
