A maiden, a monster, a sorcerer, and spirits populate an exotic island in The Tempest, Shakespeare's magical, yet terrifying romantic comedy. The sorcerer, Prospero, was exiled to the island with his daughter, Miranda. Through use of his powers, Prospero, also the rightful Duke of Milan, wrecks the ship carrying his usurping brother and several other noblemen. He then orchestrates the repentance of the wrongdoers stranded on the isle by tormenting them with spirits.
