General Information:

About the Play

When King Alonso of Naples and his entourage sail home for Italy after attending his daughter's wedding in Tunis, Africa, they encounter a violent storm. Everyone jumps overboard and are washed ashore on a strange island inhabited by the magician Prospero. Prospero and Miranda live in a cave on the island which is also inhabited by Ariel, a sprite who carries out the bidding of Prospero, and the half-human Caliban. Various plots against the main characters fail thanks to the magic of Prospero. In the conclusion, all the main characters are brought together before Prospero, who sets things right, with the help of the audience.
