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.

The Jealous Husband
and Sganarelle, or The Imaginary Cuckold
By Molière
Directed by David Taft
April 19, 8 pm
April 21, 2 pm and 7 pm
April 25, 8pm
April 27, 2 pm and 8 pm

Molière’s set of one-act comedies are wonderful examples of a blend of studied wit, informal popular entertainment and low humor reminiscent of the Commedia Dell’Arte. These shows are darkly humorous, illuminating the base human desires of greed, lust and pretense through the use of stock comedic characters. Be prepared to enjoy the verbal and physical antics of unwitting fools in the most dangerous game of love, desire…. and cuckoldry.

Pericles
Amie Christensen, Jesse Moore-Hendrickson, Adam Canne, Drew Combs, Joseph Cummings, Angela Praz, Skylar Dove, Kamaria Harris, Sean Schroeder, Anthony Lee Phillips, Leila Jacobson, Shawna Petty, Emily Pike, Sophie Paterson
