Pericles is a Shakespearean epic - an exciting and exotic adventure of mystery, marvels, and mayhem - now brought to life in a bold new production by Idle Discourse.
Having discovered a dark secret in the court of Antiochus, Pericles is forced to wander a world filled with captivating characters.
It's an odyssey of life and death, morality and depravity, civility and barbarity, and, most of all, of the everlasting endurance of love.
This new production brings you one of the Bard's grandest tales with irreverence, humour, and maybe just a little bit of silliness.
An energetic and accessible interpretation of the play, expect remarkable Shakespearean storytelling at its most evocative!
