The Tempest

The Tempest

by William Shakespeare

where and when | cast | team


"Know thus far forth.
By accident most strange, bountiful Fortune,
Now my dear lady, hath mine enemies
Brought to this shore;"

The wrongly-deposed Duke of Milan Prospero causes a storm that shipwrecks a crew upon his island. Amongst those present are his sworn enemies, Alonso, King of Naples, and his brother Antonio. Prospero plots to wreak vengeance on the crew with the aid of his magic art, and takes the King's son prisoner. Meanwhile, his monstrous servant Caliban plots to kill Prospero and take the island for his own.

William Shakespeare's fantastical play is brought to life by the Woodhouse Players, in a magical production about revenge and reconciliation.
