The Tempest is set on an almost deserted island, where Prospero the magician lives in exile with his daughter, Miranda, Caliban ,his savage but eloquent slave and Ariel, a delicate spirit who serves Prospero but who longs for freedom. A shipwreck, magically conjured up by Prospero, strands his enemies on the island. Good and evil fight for power. The course consists of five practical acting workshops and requires confident English speaking skills.
