NakedShakespearelogoPERICLES

presented by Naked Shakespeare

A cautionary and fantastical account of heroes and villains, adventure and tragedy, love, loss and redemption. This fairy tale is Shakespeare as you have not seen him before – gritty, dangerous, yet lovely and touching all at once – you might say…shades of Into the Woods. Presented as a multi-dimensional tale with actors, musicians and puppeteers.
