by William ShakespeareDirector Scott Wentworth
A storm at sea brings love into the life of Pericles, Prince of Tyre; another snatches it away. Many years must pass before fate guides the wandering hero to a poignant reunion with the family he thought he had lost forever.
Adventures of Pericles addresses mature themes, including the suggestion of incest without any on-stage depiction. This production uses strobe lighting effects.
Production support is generously provided by Drs. M.L. Myers & the late W.P. Hayman, Jane Petersen Burfield & family, Esther & Sam Sarick in honour of Antoni Cimolino, Barbara & John Schubert, and Catherine & David Wilkes.
