Summary:

Pericles, Prince of Tyre, undergoes a tyrant’s fury, storm, and shipwreck. He wins love and suffers loss, but what is lost may also be found.

With the ancient poet Gower acting as narrator, we follow the adventures of Pericles from young manhood to maturity. This strange and powerful tale of loss and recovery is the first in the group of romance comedies created by Shakespeare at the end of his dramatic career.

Sir John Gielgud plays Gower, and Nigel Terry is Pericles. Thaisa is played by Stella Gonet and Marina by Julie Cox.

“Shakespeare’s romantic comedy offers strong vocal characterizations by notable classical actors…Nigel Terry excels as Pericles. The other 20 cast members maintain dramatic energy for the entire play…It’s a pleasure to hear Shakespeare performed with such clarity and focus.”—AudioFile
