Attend workshops and see a performance of Pericles
by William Shakespeare
Pericles is the story of a family. Pericles, a young prince from ancient times, has just lost his father and hopes to make a new life through marriage to the princess of Antioch. This does not come to pass, but in the years that follow he, his new wife, Thaisa, and their daughter, Marina, will embark on a series of voyages that will bind people, places and events to one another across the waves of the Mediterranean Sea. They will face shipwreck and heartache, love and loss, but through faith and hope–and a little bit of magic–all may not be lost.
