The PERFECT introduction to Shakespeare for everyone this Easter!

On a remote island, Prospero commands spirit Ariel to wreck a passing ship. Washed ashore, the ship’s passengers – and the island’s inhabitants – are soon caught up in a magical plot of love, revenge and forgiveness. Can everyone find the freedom they are searching for?
