Lean & Hungry Theater: The Tempest

Set in the distant future, Lean & Hungry Theater's science fiction adaptation of William Shakespeare's "The Tempest" takes place far across the universe in the Naples Galaxy. The story centers on Prospero's quest for revenge against his usurping brother Antonio, who ousted Prospero from his dukedom, and the queen of the Naples Galaxy, an ally of Antonio's. Prospero now lives on a small planet with his daughter Miranda, the hideous alien Caliban and a sentence computer program named Ariel. When Antonio and the queen, along with the queen's son Ferdinand, fly close to Prospero's planet, he forces them to crash-land by creating a cosmic tempest. Using his mastery of technology, Prospero sends everyone into a mad, hilarious dance -- scheming brothers, buffoonish butlers, young lovers, aliens and computers all chasing each other around the planet -- until he brings them all together for the final confrontation.
