Pericles, Prince of Tyre
“Shakespeare’s worst play!”
Directed by Martin Cooke
Starring BBC TV star, Simon Hubbard.
Pericles is a road trip show - more akin to ‘Sinbad the sailor’ than Homer’s Ilyad. Nowadays Pericles is referred to by stuffy intellectuals as “Shakespeare’s worst play!” As a matter of fact Pericles was, in its day, Shakespeare’s most popular and successful play. A romantic, comical and stirring adventure story set on the high seas in sunny Mediterranean climes, it really captured the imagination of Golden age theatre lovers. Our silly Shakespeare style, exuberant version will do the same! Authentic and original Mediterranean music especially composed by Anna and Gennady Hoffman. Actioning and choreography direction by Marina Pietlovicz.
