The Tempest by Geoff Bamber
RolesMinimum Male roles = 9. Minimum Female roles = 2. Minimum total with doubling = 12. Minimum total without doubling = 12. No chorus. The characters preserve Shakespeare's original, which means that the Naples court is all male. It need not be cast that way.

StyleA play originally written by William Shakespeare and completely altered by Geoff Bamber. (This version is in modern, humorous. English. It extends the story back in time to avoid the long exposition speeches of Shakespeare's second act!)
SynopsisProspero, Duke of Milan and part-time magician, is tricked into undertaking a hazardous sea journey by his treacherous brother, Antonio, who promptly takes over the duchy when Prospero is conveniently shipwrecked in a great storm. Prospero, along with his daughter, Miranda, survives the wreck and finds himself on a desert island. From there he uses his magic powers to gain revenge on Antonio and Alonso, King of Naples, who is unwittingly supporting Antonio under the influence of his own unscrupulous brother, Sebastian. With the principals all gathered on the same island, Prospero sets out to divide and conquer, a task somewhat hindered by the presence of a range of bizarre and possibly deranged supporting characters.
