The Tempest

September - October 2020

“Isolation, a hostile environment, divisions in the royal family…these are things that are hard to imagine in 2020, but Prospero is all too familiar with them.

He is a former duke, exiled on a virtually uninhabited island in the middle of the Mediterranean for twelve years. Fortunately, for him, all of his enemies are about to sail past. So, he conjurs a storm, wrecks their ship and leaves them separated all over his new home so he can regain his dukedom and his freedom.

It’s not the greatest plan, but it’s all he’s got…and it all has to comply with social distancing measures!

Will he get everything he desires? Will he figure out what “one-metre plus” means? And will we all get the happy ending that we so desperately need this year?
