PCT: The Tempest

General Event Information

Faeries, storms, age-old treachery and newly-blossomed romance fill this classic tale. Said to be one of the last works written by the Bard, The Tempest is set on a remote island, where Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion and skillful manipulation. He conjures up a storm, the eponymous tempest, to lure his usurping brother Antonio and the complicit King Alonso of Naples to the island. There, his machinations bring about the revelation of Antonio's lowly nature, the redemption of the King and the marriage of Miranda to Alonso's son, Ferdinand.
