Wildcard Theatre's musical adaptation of Shakespeare's final play.
Robbed of his power and wealth, Prospero - a powerful magician - is stranded on an island. When he sees a boat carrying the men who wronged him on the horizon, he creates a magical storm that wrecks their ship, rending them stranded too.
This musical production is performed by a cast of nine actor-musicians.
A fun evening of Shakespearean spectacle (though if you don't know the story it may be a little hard to follow in this production), Wildcard have done an excellent job of making this classic tale thoroughly entertaining.
Nonetheless, it’s very enjoyable, and the cast is clearly having a brilliant time, which rubs off on the audience. Though it lacks cohesion at times, this is surely one of the more vibrant interpretations of The Tempest of recent years.
