tempestuous(ness), or HIStory Is Told by the Victors
We employ one of Shakespeare's more psychologically complex works ("The Tempest") as a point of departure.

The central issue we explore is why Sycorax, former mistress of The Tempest's island, is missing from the Bard's play. She's a witch, single mom, and female ruler of a magical place, commanding monsters and fairies, yet Shakespeare reduces this fascinating character's life to a rambling expository monologue! What's really going on?

With tempestuous(ness) we let Sycorax tell her side of the story, while deconstructing the other stories beneath "The Tempest".

2.30pm, The Garage @ 975 Howard -- tempestuous(ness): PUS' take on The Tempest might be rough around the edges. But the ensemble cast attacks Scott Baker's quite cleverly composed Wicked-meets-Rosencrantz-and-Guildenstern-are-Dead-like script with such gusto that it's hard not to fall in love with both the actors and the ideas. I could have done without the limp "five-minute-Tempest" at the end of the performance. But I'll listen to Shakespeare's sonnets intoned by a middle-aged actor with a passion that belies his speech impediment any day.
