by William Shakespeare
directed by Trevor Nunn

February 14, 2016 - March 27, 2016
Theatre For A New Audience, Polonsky Shakespeare Center, 262 Ashland Place, Brooklyn


Trevor Nunn, four-time Tony and Olivier Award-winner and former Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal National Theatre, stages Pericles, one of Shakespeare’s late plays, for the first time in his career. Pericles combines 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, helps convey the mystery and magic of this story of redemption, reconciliation, and forgiveness. The acclaimed storyteller-musicians of PigPen Theatre Co. lend their voices and instrumentation to the production, playing Mr. Davey’s score and performing various roles throughout. This production will also be a part of our season-long celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

Christian Camargo returns to TFANA, following his performance in Coriolanus and Hamlet, to play the title role in Pericles.
