Description

In the 12 years since Prospero's departure, Caliban has painstakingly sifted through the ashes of the books of magic, slowly piecing together a way to save his island from mankind's abuse. By turns both magical and disturbing, Caliban’s Codex gives you an insight into one of Shakespeare’s most mysterious characters and shows him to be much more than the much-maligned monster he is often taken for. This intense and personal postscript to the Tempest was written by John Knowles, stars award-winning actor Emily Carding, and was nominated for several awards at Prague Fringe 2018, including best performance.
