Thought to be the final play that Shakespeare wrote by himself, THE TEMPEST is filled with amazing characters and scenes. It is the story of Prospero the Magician and his daughter Miranda marooned on a strange island for many years. Scholars have often thought that the play is autobiographical and that Prospero’s final words are Shakespeare’s farewell to the stage as he prepared to retire.
