Hag-Seed

by Margaret Atwood
Release date: October 4, 2016
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy

The Tempest is set on a remote island full of strange noises and creatures. Here, Prospero, the deposed Duke of Milan, plots to restore the fortunes of his daughter Miranda by using magic and illusion - starting with a storm that will bring Antonio, his treacherous brother, to him. All Prospero, the great sorcerer, needs to do is watch as the action he has set in train unfolds.

In Margaret Atwood's 'novel take' on Shakespeare's original, theatre director Felix has been unceremoniously ousted from his role as Artistic Director of the Makeshiweg Theatre. When he lands a job teaching theatre in a prison, the possibiltity of revenge presents itself - and his cast find themselves taking part in an interactive and illusion-ridden version of The Tempest that will change their lives forever.
