The Tempest (theatre)

Umbrellas are up, the skies are grey and that can only mean one thing. It's summer and time for the annual tradition of Shakespeare on the Seafront! This year's EODS production is The Tempest, the supernatural tale of a Duke and his daughter Miranda exiled on an enchanted island. I hear that the production is to be given an extra magical aspect devised by none other than Paul Daniels!

Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds dominion over an enchanted island. He is comforted by his daughter Miranda and served by his spirit Ariel and deformed slave Caliban. When Prospero raises a storm to wreck his treacherous brother and his confederates on the island, his long thought out revenge at last seems within reach.
