The magician Prospera spends a dozen years perfecting her dark arts in exile on an isolated island with her daughter, Miranda. Finally, she conjures a storm that brings the nobility who wronged her so many years previous and begins a scheme of vengeance threatened by the turmoil of love.
This last solo work of Shakespeare’s bears a few changes, namely that the vengeful central character has undergone a gender shift, originally being penned as a man. The change isn’t a complete departure from precedent, as Vanessa Redgrave played the role as a sexually ambiguous one in 2000.
