(Three Man) Tempest: A play by William Shakespeare. Adapated and directed by Randolph Curtis Rand. (Three Man) Tempest tells the tale of Prospero, a once powerful ruler who was exiled from his kingdom by his unscrupulous brother. Left for dead on a desert island, Prospero raises his young daughter, Miranda and conquers the local spirits, both high (Ariel) and low (Caliban). Then a shipwreck sends Prospero’s brother and his co-conspirators against Prospero crashing onto the very shores upon which Prospero was vanquished. Now, Prospero, in his element, holds the upper hand. But against his own brother, will he use it?
