The production will see space explorer Prospero marooned in a galaxy far, far away with his fearless daughter Miranda and a host of madcap aliens. Years later when his enemies’ ship is passing nearby, the chance for revenge is hard to resist and he conjures up the force to bring them to him.

A spokesperson said: “Crash landing in a meteor storm is just the beginning for the crew as they are teased and tormented to submission – Prospero’s enemies do their malevolent best to get away but he’s one tough space oddity to beat.”
