The Tempest by William Shakespeare
Stranded on a lonely island the exiled Duke of Milan, Prospero, using his magic arts and with the help of the spirit Ariel, raises a great storm.
A shipwreck brings ashore a suitor for his young daughter Miranda, his traitorous brother Antonio and his former Neapolitan enemies.
He has the choice between revenge and forgiveness.

Between each act of the play there are reports from seabird encrusted rocks around Britain, ancient sea poetry made new and listeners' seaside stories.
Plus live music and sea poetry from Ian Mcmillan and accordionist Luke Carver Goss, and guests Coope Boyes and Simpson perform shanties.
