Transplanting characters from The Tempest to present-day New York
ROUGH MAGIC is a Shakespearean action-adventure-fantasy
that conjures a mythical, magical meta-universe in which
the evil sorcerer Prospero is willing to do anything to recover
his stolen book of magic - even it means Manhattan's destruction.
Lucky for us, New York's defenders include a quartet of unlikely heros:
Melanie Porter, a plucky, raven-haired dramaturg
with the ability to free characters from plays;
Caliban, Prospero's hunky (though not-too-bright) son;
Tisiphone, a revenge-seeking Fury drag queen from Ancient Greece;
and a seventeen-year-old lifeguard from Coney Island named Chet Baxter.
May the forces of evil beware.....
