Shakespeare's The Tempest is thought to be one of the last plays he ever wrote.  The story of Prospero, the wronged Duke of Milan, and his young daughter Miranda begins with their exile to a magical island at the hands of Prospero's greedy brother, Antonio.  On the island, they encounter Caliban, a monster of the island, and Ariel, a magical sprite who (a little unwillingly) help them enact justice upon those who have wronged them.  Along the way, they'll meet King Alonso, and his son Ferdinand (who soon sets his eyes on fair Miranda), the King's evil brother Sebastian, advisor to the King, Gonzalo, and two clownish butlers Stephano and Trinculo, who enact much chaos about the island.
