About this show

In this witty adaptation of Shakespeare's The Tempest, a wild storm tears through a quiet East Anglian seaside town, causing the drowning of a young villager and washing a stranger ashore. While the stranger claims to be a close friend of the drowned man, the village draper, Hatch, fears that all it not as it seems. Convinced that the stranger is an invader from outer space, Hatch attempts to turn the village against him. In the midst of what quickly becomes a battle of wills between Hatch and the town's grande dame - who has taken the stranger under her wing - the fiancée of the drowned man begins to fall in love with the stranger.
