On Tuesday 27th September 2016 the Form 4’s of the Naparima Girls’ High School took a
leisurely stroll to Naparima Bowl to view the production of The Tempest by Deborah Jean
Baptiste and the Oratory Foundation.Without a doubt, the play was a tremendous success.The
actors were all able to embody the respective characters from the play through their language and
dress and so were able to maintain the attention of the audience throughout the entire production.
The setting of the play and stage directions allowed the audience to experience a tempest and it
set the stage for unraveling of magic, illusion and deceit. Although the actors must be
commended for their performances, the crowd’s favourite was Caliban ‘a product of nature, the
offspring of Sycorax and the devil.’ The play was quite enjoyable and it gave us students an
insight into the set text for the English B examination.
