Incest and intrigue, pirates and prostitutes, bitter revenge and providential reunions: Shakespeare’s collaborative Pericles, Prince of Tyre was popular in its day, scorned by Shakespeare’s great rival Ben Jonson, and mysteriously omitted from the 1623 collected edition of his plays. The Bard’s first, experimental foray into stage tragicomedy, Pericles embodies the attractions of early-modern popular theatre, and provides a uniquely challenging work for contemporary performance. We are delighted to welcome back Charise Greene, to direct Pericles in honor of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. Performed by Barnard and Columbia students.
