Synopsis

Documentary following 17 young London actors as they attempt to stage their own version of one of Shakespeare's most famous plays, 'The Tempest'. Shakespeare experts believe that 'The Tempest', set on a remote island populated by an exiled duke, his beautiful daughter and a savage called Caliban, was one of the final plays written by the playwright. The documentary follows a group of teenagers over a period of nine months as they conceive, plan, practise and finally perform their own vision of the play. What will their efforts tell us about the difference between Shakespeare's world and ours?
