Pericles, Prince of Tyre, sets out to woo a princess and sails headlong into harrowing adventure. Pursued by an evil king, Pericles is blown from port to exotic port. Along the way, he finds the love of his life, then loses her and their infant daughter in a storm-tossed sea. Happily, this is a romance-- Shakespeare's first-- where, in true storybook fashion, miracles reunite the lost with those who love them, bringing joy and safe harbor at last.

"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"
