The Complete Works of Shakespeare: Pericles
Shakespeare Dallas and AT&T Performing Arts Center are in the midst of presenting staged readings of every single one of Williams Shakespeare's works over five years. The 34th in the series will be Pericles.
Pericles, Prince of Tyre, is forced to flee his own kingdom and wander the world. Following a shipwreck, he meets Princess Thaisa and wins her for his wife. Months later, in another sea-storm, Thaisa dies in childbirth and her body is committed to the deep. The grief-stricken Pericles takes comfort in his baby daughter, Marina, but fosters her with friends. Years pass.
Performances will take place in Hamon Hall of Winspear Opera House. Student tickets for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare are free to students with valid IDs. Student tickets will be available at the door only, one hour before each performance.
