Périclès is one of Shakespeare’s strangest and most heartrending plays. Périclès navigates a stormy sea of pirates, magicians, brothels, kidnappers, tournaments, plots against his life...and divine intervention from the goddess Diana. Yet this remarkable play has resonance far beyond the time when it was written: today’s Mediterranean is no stranger to appalling and desperate voyages.

It is a fable of a man who becomes estranged from those he loves. A man who slowly and miraculously becomes reunited with them, more through fate than by his efforts. It is about the mystery of love, loss and of love rediscovered after a painful and confusing absence. The embers dim and glow in one of the greatest and most moving scenes Shakespeare ever wrote.

Incest, treachery, murder, love and joy all explode in this giant theatrical firework...

    Wed 14 - Thu 15 Mar

    The global economy is a mess. The crash has landed, the tide’s swept out, and it’s taken our hope with it. The rich have got richer, the middle’s squeezed tight, and the poor are being dragged ever downwards.
