By Shakespeare. Directed by Simon Usher
Pericles is Shakespeare’s Odysey. A revelation of royal incest leads to a long voyage culminatingin an epiphany of non-sexual love between father and daughter. A wife assumed dead comes backto life and the daughter in question is abandoned, lost and found. The play balances spoken narrative with striking images. ‘Your eye and your ear I’ll reconcile’ claims the narrator poet, Gower.
