The seafaring tale of Pericles unfolds as the wandering prince of the title seeks the hand of a princess in Antioch, only to discover her illicit relationship with her father. Fleeing for his life, Pericles embarks on adventure after adventure after he escapes his engagement. From a difficult journey bringing grain to Tarsus during a famine to winning a tournament and marrying the king’s daughter in Pentapolis, and the loss of ships and men in a storm, Pericles faces joy and peril with open arms.
Fiasco Theater, an ensemble theatre company based in New York City, was founded by co-artistic directors who first crossed paths during the early years of their MFA acting program. They wore various hats as actors, directors, and writers there and made that their mission at Fiasco — one co-artistic director, Ben Steinfeld, stages Pericles off Broadway.
