The National Theatre Of Greece bring their Greek language version of Pericles to the Globe as part of the Globe’s innovative Globe To Globe season.
The National Theatre of Greece are no strangers to London: Dimitris Rondiris’ productions of Hamlet and Electra played at His Majesty’s Theatre in 1939, and the company was a regular in the World Theatre Seasons at Aldwych in the 1960s and 1970s. Like Pericles, they have finally returned – with twelve of Greece’s leading actors – to tell this story of wild wanderings around the Mediterranean basin, and their redemptive conclusion.
Globe To Globe sees every one of Shakespeare’s 37 plays performed in a different language by an international company. The result is a once in a life time, six week celebration of the incredible breadth of communities and languages that make up London’s vibrant cultural landscape.
