Pericles, Prince Of Tyre
Pericles arrives, shipwrecked, in Pentapolis, where he is saved by fisherman and marries Princess Thaisa.

Shortly afterwards, however, Thaisa dies at sea giving birth to a child: Marina. Pericles fosters this daughter to a friend. When she is also reported dead some years later, he falls into a speechless grief. The story culminates in the redemption of the long-suffering Pericles through a series of seeming miracles.

Kathryn Hunter and Liz Cooke worked together on the 1999 Globe production of The Comedy of Errors. Their powerful, physical style of theatre will make for a fascinating interpretation of this mythical play.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
