O brave new world,
That has such people in’t!
Mercury’s Wings brings you the magical tale of Shakespeare’s last play, The Tempest. The powerful magician Prospero has been exiled to a seemingly uninhabited island. Desirous for revenge, he uses his powers to manipulate the elements and bring his usurping brother onto the island to exact his punishment. Out of the raging storm and powerful island spirits, Mercury’s Wings will explore themes of reconciliation, forgiveness, love and loss. A small ensemble of highly trained actors will bring a slick and streamlined Tempest to the Gold Coast stage for the first time.
