Description

Pericles, Prince of Tyre, undergoes a tyrant's fury, storm, and shipwreck. He wins love and suffers loss, but what is lost may also be found. With the ancient poet Gower acting as narrator, we follow the adventures of Pericles from young manhood to maturity. This strange and powerful tale of loss and recovery is the first in the group of romance comedies created by Shakespeare at the end of his dramatic career. Sir John Gielgud plays Gower, and Nigel Terry is Pericles. Thaisa is played by Stella Gonet and Marina by Julie Cox.

Professional reviews

"A young prince is on the run after he solves the riddle presented by an evil king. The prince is caught in a huge storm and is rescued by fishermen just in time for him to enter a tournament to win the hand of the beautiful princess of the island. The cast of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival presents this wild tale as a sea story, even singing a number of the rhyming couplets as sea chanties. The ensemble uses their American accents to good effect, keeping the fast-paced Elizabethan language sounding clear and understandable. As for who actually wrote the 1606 play, most scholars lean toward a collaboration between the Bard and a dramatist/pamphleteer named George Wilkins. B.P. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
