[Colourful wooden two story set with actors]

From The Fools: A shipwreck. A deserted island. A man with a 12 year-old grudge. Betrayal. Revenge. Magic. And a little bit of power imbalance thrown in for good measure.

Duke Prospero, or should we say ‘ex’ Duke Prospero has been waiting for this moment for 12 long years. Overthrown from power by his very own brother, he has been rehearsing this encounter every night as he fell asleep on the deserted island he found himself banished to.

But, as the ship bearing his arch enemies draws closer and closer, will Prospero reclaim his rule, or falter when new enemies emerge?
