The Tempest

2 hr 25 min | Royal Shakespeare Company | 2016

On a distant island a man waits. Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But Prospero is a magician, able bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.
