presented by Naked Shakespeare
Never has a man been so beset by storms and tumultuous circumstance as our hero Pericles. So says medieval poet John Gower, who returns from the grave briefly to lead us through this cautionary and fantastical account of heroes and villains, adventure and tragedy, love, loss and redemption.
This fairy-tale is Shakespeare as you have not seen him before – gritty, dangerous, yet lovely and touching all at once – you might say…shades of Into the Woods, but way before its time.
Come experience this multi-dimensional tale with the Naked Shakespeare ensemble of actors, musicians and puppeteers!
