The Tempest
  • Edinburgh Fringe

On a remote island, Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion, magical spirits and skilful 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. For those who are shipwrecked, trickery abounds, romance blossoms and monsters lurk in this fast-paced, musical family show. Shakespeare's wonderfully magical play of love and sorcery, airy spirits and drunken sailors and theatrical illusion, performed in the beautiful outdoor setting of Inveresk Lodge Garden.
