Come adventure to an exotic island alive with magic, revenge and finally forgiveness. The Tempest by Wm. Shakespeare is known as his most entertaining and poignant play; a romantic comedy and the last play he wrote.  The ‘civilized’ find themselves confronting their own wickedness on an island where forces of nature, power and mystery conspire and unite to reveal the deepest truths. 

A punishing storm at sea begins this tale about the outcome of betrayal, when an exiled duke uses dark powers to wreck the ship on which sails with the King and those betrayers.  Not a soul perishes, and instead a romance is born between the royal magician's daughter and the King’s son. 

But there are more plots afoot: drunken butlers, a spiteful island monster and supernatural creatures to carry out the twists and turns that carry us through this magical world to the sweet surrender found in the truest love at the end.
