The Adventures of Pericles, Prince of Tyre
About Pericles, Prince of Tyre
"Pericles, Prince of Tyre" is a fun, bawdy, hilarious, and slightly musical odyssey for the adventurous kid in every adult! Presented in the style of an energetic pantomime, this epic tale features shipwrecks, jousts, a king whose throne is accented with the skulls of his victims, a group of drunken singing knights, Roman Goddesses, and a prince in rusty armor fighting for true love. Pericles and his daughter Marina encounter these things and more on their quest to find their way back to being a family. Written by William Shakespeare and George Wilkins (an aspiring writer and brothel owner,) this play takes strange and riveting twists and turns through both the grotesque and the pure, weaving a silly yet somehow still poignant story about the meaning of hope, love, and family.
