In a stunning, stripped-back version of a rarely performed adventure, Pericles is reborn, full of passion and laced with comedy.  Brilliantly designed, brought to life and shot in an innovative theatre-on-film style born out of the necessities of our times. Catch this astonishing 80 minutes of highly accessible story-telling: Pericles as you’ve never seen it before.

Riding Lights, a York company with a reputation for breathing fresh energy into Shakespeare’s later comedies, has clearly been on a creative voyage themselves to deliver this captivating re-telling.

‘Such a good play – so many strong themes told as a series of intimate human stories. A great achievement.’  York International Shakespeare Festival 2021.
