William Shakespeare's 'The Tempest' is a tale of ambition,temptation and revenge.There is romance introduced to offer some relief from the heavy duty supernatural stuff that happens throughout.The humour,as in all other of the bard's plays is very down-to-earth.It is indeed wonderful that the same person who is able to write about high philosophy is so conversant with the ways of the hoi-polloi.The setting for the play is a lonesome island.The very soiltary nature of the place makes for magic,love and conspiracy.Some people are out to seek revenge.Some lust for power.And two beautiful people come close and fall in hopeless love.The hero of the play is the island and the inclement weather.

The story is thus.Prospero used to be Duke of Milan.When he took leave of his charge for studies in magic his brother Antonio usurped the position. Prospero was forced to come to a desolate island with his daughter Miranda.Here he became master of occult. With the help of his powers he brings to the island his brother,the king of Naples and the latter's brother.A ship carrying all these people wrecks.Ferdinand, the king's son is also on the island after losing contact with co-passengers on the ship. Prospero uses his magic to bring everyone together at the right time and his Dukedom is restored. Ferdinand grows to love Miranda and their match is approved.There is a hilarious attempt at drunken rebellion by Prospero's slave Caliban.

Exciting yet funny!
