Pericles, Prince of Tyre

By William Shakespeare
Directed and Choreographed by Charise Greene
Music by Alaina Ferris


Incest and intrigue, pirates and prostitutes, bitter revenge and providential reunions: Shakespeare's collaborative Pericles was popular in its day, scorned by Shakespeare's great rival Ben Jonson, and mysteriously omitted from the 1623 collected edition of his plays. Shakespeare's first, experimental foray into stage tragicomedy, Pericles embodies the attractions of early-modern popular theatre, and provides a uniquely challenging work for contemporary performance.
