Shakespeare's timeless tale is one that has been beloved for centuries. Being one of his last works, Shakespeare delves into the themes of betrayal, courtship and exoneration all the while entertaining with comical and magical scenes and characters. The plot centers around a magical deposed Duke, Prospero, who, while rearing up his child, Miranda, governs an enchanted island with the help of his spirit servant, Ariel. The beginning of the play depicts a tempest that brings his then enemy brother and his entourage to the island along with Trinculo, a court jester and a drunken butler, Stephano. The clown and butler friends team up with a disgruntled native servant, Caliban, to depose Prospero from his reign over the island. Other plots and courtships pepper this tale, all told with the ancient and beautiful language that brings Shakespeare alive.
