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


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 because it involves incest, intrigue, pirates, and prostitutes. How do we deal with these topics in today’s world, where sexist narratives must be reevaluated? 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.
