Shakespeare The Tempest Synopsis
A tale of revenge, redemption, personal growth, hatred, love, slavery and – ultimately – coconuts.
Prospero’s quest for vengeance is obsessive, blinding him/her to his own short-sighted – and cynical view of the world. Through his love for his daughter – and his increasing awareness of his treatment of both Ariel and Caliban – he comes to an understanding of not only a humanist world view, but also of himself.
On their cruise home from a royal wedding in Africa, a European ruler and his closest advisors are marooned on an uncharted island.Political wheeling and dealing must take a backseat as their mysterious host – Prospero – carries out a program of what seems to be hell-bent revenge, but soon shifts into something more profound.
Love, loyalties and trust will be challenged as magic takes us into a deeper understanding of what it means not only to be human, but also humane to others.
