Pericles

Any potential suitor who wishes to marry the daughter of Antiochus must first answer a riddle. To answer incorrectly means immediate death. But when Pericles discovers the dark and terrible answer to King Antiochus' riddle, he flees for his life. In self-exile from Tyre he encounters famine, shipwreck, love and fatherhood . . . but in his desire to return home, he once again jeopardises his life and those he loves. Don’t miss this startling production.

A beautifully-paced, thoughtful and intelligent production, with plenty of action offsetting moments of real pathos and tragedy —The Times
