A sweeping, sea-faring epic of an everyman, Pericles takes us on a wild, fairy-tale adventure. Like Odysseus, Pericles must brave great obstacles: riddles, plagues, shipwrecks, pirates, loss, love and death itself in order to reach home and redemption. One of the first plays to be produced after the Restoration and the theaters were reopened in London in 1660, Pericles figures the human journey out of torment and chaos into joy and order through the workings of the divine soul.
