Prospero, a potent magician lives in exile with his daughter Miranda on an island. Aided by the spirit, Ariel, he conjures a storm to wreck the ship carrying his enemies, who are washed up on the island. Prospero wants justice. Miranda wants a husband. Ariel wants freedom. Jack Shepherd (one of the UK's best known character actors and star of TV's Wycliffe) directed the opening production at Shakespeare's Globe and has subsequently worked there many times.
