Bristol Shakespeare Festival: The Tempest at Brandon Hill
12 years ago, Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his brother, washes up on a distant and mystical island with his baby daughter, Miranda. Now his enemies – his brother Antonio, who supplanted him as Duke, and Alonso, King of Naples – are blown off course towards him while sailing home. Prospero raises a tempestuous storm that shipwrecks them. Scattered across the island, the boat’s passengers are tested and tormented as they are magically drawn towards their fate. Left to plot his revenge for years, Prospero finally has the chance to exact it. But will he?
