The Tempest, one of the last plays written by William Shakespeare, takes place in a single day on a deserted island. Twelve years prior, Prospero was Duke of Milan, but left the management of his state to his brother Antonio, who took control of Milan himself, and sent Prospero and his baby daughter Miranda out to sea. Now, an angry Prospero seeks revenge – using his powers, with the help of the spirit, Ariel, to create a powerful storm that shipwrecks a boat carrying Antonio and some of his family and friends on an island. What will happen to the characters on the island? Will Prospero get his revenge? Will his daughter, Miranda, find love? Will anyone make it out alive? Join WTP to find out!
