Be guided through a strange and wonderful land by our storyteller in this interactive live storytelling event.

The powerful sorcerer, Prospero lives on an island with only his daughter Miranda, the spirit Ariel and the slave Caliban. Until one day he conjures a storm and there is a shipwreck. The new arrivals find themselves caught up in a family feud, but as magic takes flight grudges are set aside and love finally conquers all.
