The VORTEX says
Be among the first to experience this brand new adaptation of a Shakespearean classic, adapted by Lorella Loftus with aerial acts directed by Andy Agne. Feedback after the reading is welcome in the setting of an informal discussion.

This drama is one of the great comedy plays by William Shakespeare. The themes illustrated in the play are freedom, friendship , repentance and forgiveness and feature different temperaments illustrating temperance and intemperance. The plot starts when King Alonso of Naples and his entourage sail home for Italy after attending his daughter's wedding in Tunis, Africa. They encounter a violent storm, or Tempest. Everyone jumps overboard and are washed ashore on a strange island inhabited by the magician Prospero who has deliberately conjured up the storm. Prospero and Miranda live in a cave on the island which is also inhabited by Ariel, a sprite who carries out the bidding of Prospero, and the ugly, half human Caliban. Various plots against the main characters fail thanks to the magic of Prospero. The play ends with all the plotters repenting the Tempest is calmed.

Readers for "The Tempest" on Saturday include Anders Nerheim as Prospero, Tom Swift as Older Prospero, Gabriel Maldonado as Caliban, Olivia Jimenez as Miranda, Jesus Valles-Morales as Gonzalo, Chelsea Manasseri as Antonio, Gerald Chaney as Trinculo, and many others including aerialists from the Sky Candy Studio.
