Tony Award-winning director Mary Zimmerman delivers her trademark breathtaking elegance and emotion in this production of Shakespeare’s epic tale.
Pericles, Prince of Tyre, solves a riddle that exposes the incestuous relationship between the Princess he loves and her own father, the King of Antiochus. Fleeing before the King can kill him, Pericles embarks on a journey throughout the ancient world. This is merely the beginning of a lush tale filled with pirates, jousts, brothels, sorceresses, goddesses, miracles and more.
