William Shakespeare's The Tempest

Trickery, mystery, and revenge set the stage for one of Shakespeare’s masterpieces, where spirits roam, magic is real, reality is elusive, and illusion abounds. In this fanciful classic, often compared to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, an exiled noble turned sorcerer uses his power to raise a fierce storm, shipwrecking a group of conspirators onto his remote island home that’s full of mysterious and magical beasts, and nothing is as it seems. There, attended by his daughter, the sorcerer leads his enemies through a fantastic dream where all must choose between vengeance and the freedom that can only come with reconciliation and forgiveness.
