An adaptation in One Act of Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'.  Suitable for performance by Youth Groups or adults.  9 female/10 male.  


This abridged version of the play again uses the language of Shakespeare interspersed with more colloquial modern language without losing any of the originality of the plot or characters.  Prospero and Miranda, Ariel and Caliban lead the cast of colourful characters through the fantasy of Shakespeare's farewell to the stage. 


(See 'THE MERCHANT OF VENICE' for a possible double bill.)
