The witch Sycorax, a character referred to, but never seen, in Shakespeare’s The Tempest, has waited 500 years for the right medium to tell her side of the story. The internet is what she was waiting for. The first half of the play is her backstory in wealthy households in Algiers where her family wants to marry her off to a man she does not like and she discovers her supernatural powers. She gets banished to the jungle island of Qamara and plots her revenge. Eight actors play 19 characters including four animals.
