From ashes ancient [we are] come,
Assuming man’s infirmities,
To glad your ear and please your eyes.”
-The Chorus, PERICLES
Pericles tells a surging adventure story—a hero wanders Odysseus-like through the world of the Mediterranean—and climaxes with events that are seemingly miraculous.
An original score composed by Tony-nominated Shaun Davey helps convey the mystery and magic of this tale of redemption, reconciliation, and forgiveness. The acclaimed story-teller musicians of PigPen Theatre Co. lend their voices and instrumentation to the production, playing Mr. Davey’s score and performing various roles throughout.
Christian Camargo returns to TFANA, following his performances in Coriolanus and Hamlet, to play the title role. Trevor Nunn, former Artistic Director, Royal Shakespeare Company and Royal National Theatre, stages Pericles, one of Shakespeare’s late plays, for the first time in his career.
