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.
