Eye of the Storm is a retelling of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, which tells the story from Miranda’s point of view, as she struggles to grow up, on a magic island controlled by her father Prospero. When two other young people arrive on the island, Trinculo (a laddish sailor) and Stephano (who is really Stephanie but has dressed as a boy and run away from home) the underlying tensions and conflicts between daughter and father are accelerated in an amusing and dramatic way. Will Miranda escape the island? Will she find out the truth about her long lost Mother?

“The script has a perfectly easy relationship with its literary ancestor, is written in language which manages to be both basic and poetic.” -The Irish Times
