  • Overview

    Sweet Tea Shakespeare will close its summer season with Pericles, an extraordinary and epic tale of hope and loveJoin us for the thrilling story of a young prince finding his way in the ancient Mediterranean. Sail the seas with us as Pericles faces off against an evil, adulterous king, fights off the best of the best to win the love of his life, and wrecks every ship he puts his feet on.

    Pericles is the story of a brave and noble man, who undergoes challenges and tragedies, and emerges fulfilled. It is also the story of his daughter, who is separated from her father while a baby and grows up to be a paragon of virtue in a hard world of cruelty and exploitation. Full of swashbuckling pirates, jousting tournaments, and endless adventures, Pericles is a heartrending adventure for all.
