Shakespeare's rarely performed, epic fairy tale, Pericles is brought to magical life, in a full production by Independent Shakespeare Co.
The fantastic story includes shipwrecks, pirates, an abandoned baby, a long-lost wife, and a knight in rusted armor fighting for love. At every turn, Pericles confronts events both grotesque and miraculous as his long and brilliant history unfolds. By turns lyrical and rough, the sprawling play was wildly popular in Renaissance England. It is the probable collaboration between William Shakespeare (revered English dramatist and poet) and George Wilkins (novelist, petty criminal and likely brothel-keeper). Please be advised: the play includes some adult situations.
