Written by William Shakespeare
"Tis time to fear when tyrants seem to kiss"
Careening between sea storms, high courts, bawdy brothels, palace intrigue and cases of mistaken identity, Pericles examines the will of the human spirit to endure all obstacles no matter how weighty or unlikely. A sweeping story of adventure, passion, and loss, Pericles asks if humankind can ever truly be the masters of fate.
