The Tempest” is William Shakespeare’s comedy set on a mysterious and deserted island that begins with a shipwreck and ends in a love story.  The island is populated only by Prospero, his daughter Miranda, and Ariel and Caliban, the magical beings that serve them until the shipwreck brings Prospero’s past to his mystic shores.  It tells a tale of betrayal, ill treatment, and the development of magic arts to feed a plot of revenge.  In the end, Miranda’s heart is won and Prospero’s title is restored through the help, and hindrance, of their otherworldly assistants.
