Pericles, one of the group of Shakespeare's 'Late Plays,' is part of Theatre for a New Audience's season-long celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death (April 23, 1616). Pericles relates 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 written by Tony-nominated Irish composer Shaun Davey (with whom Trevor Nunn has worked six times, including his film of Twelfth Night) will help in telling the story and conveying the mystery and magic of the ending. The acclaimed storyteller-musicians of PigPen Theatre Co. will lend their voices and instrumentation to the production, playing Mr. Davey's score and performing various roles throughout.
