Felix is at the top of his game as artistic director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival. His productions have amazed and confounded. Now he's staging a Tempest like no other: not only will it boost his reputation, it will heal emotional wounds. Or that was the plan. Instead, after an act of unforeseen treachery, Felix is living in exile in a backwoods hovel, haunted by memories of his beloved lost daughter, Miranda. And brewing revenge. After 12 years revenge finally arrives in the shape of a theatre course at a nearby prison. Here Felix and his inmate actors will put on his Tempest and snare the traitors who destroyed him. It's magic! But will it remake Felix as his enemies fall?

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Modern Shakespeare submitted by mickplu on July 1, 2017, 9:59am I love this redesign of The Tempest! A modern retelling that involves a Shakespeare in Prison program. Even better, I was in the audience when Margaret Atwood read parts of the book!

Delightful submitted by Cihendricks on August 12, 2019, 10:04pm This story was enchanting! I especially loved how Atwood was inspired by several recent portrayals of The Tempest and by her native Canada's Stratford Festival in creating this brave new world.
