They took away his lands, but they could not take away his power.
Now fate and sorcery will conspire to maroon them in his domain.

His rules.
His revenge… Or is it??

Cesaire’s anti-colonialist re-imagining of Shakespeare engages with the racial and class conflicts intrinsic to The Tempest. Combining humour and ritual as well as sadness, he debunks the notion of the ‘White Man’s Burden’, and demands his point of view be heard.
