Nick and Miranda are two bright, funny best friends marooned in Great Yarmouth. Nick is obsessed with The Tempest, believing that if they can find an Ariel, they can conjure a storm. When Will arrives, the elements seem to be in place, but none of them realise the powers they are about to unleash.

This is the world premiere of Ian McHugh’s first play.
