In this unusual monologue play, Sycorax, the witch mother of Caliban on Prospero's Island, tries to explain the world to him and help him defend himself against Prospero and Miranda before she is herself consumed by her demonic God and lover Setebos. A powerful acting piece for a mature actress, and an interesting possible companion piece to Nigro's Caliban and Full Fathom Five. Published in Gorgons & Other Plays.
