Périclès, Prince de Tyr 2018


Yet cease your ire, you angry stars of heaven!
Wind, rain, and thunder, remember, earthly man
Is but a substance that must yield to you…

Périclès is one of Shakespeare’s strangest and most heart rending plays. Périclès navigates a stormy sea of pirates, magicians, brothels, kidnappers, tournaments, plots against his life… and divine intervention from the Goddess Diana. Incest, treachery, murder, love, joy all explode in this giant theatrical firework…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, who slowly and miraculously becomes re-united 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.
