‘Pericles’ at the Barbican

Don’t miss this bold new version of one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known tales

What is it? Tickets to Cheek by Jowl’s ambitious staging of Shakespeare’s ‘Pericles’ at the Barbican – exclusively discounted for Time Out. Why buy? ★★★★ ‘One long fever dream…. watching this is an adventure.’ – Time Out Theatre. Battling for the top spot as one of Shakespeare downright weirdest plays, ‘Pericles’ is a strange, dreamish, delirious tale. The eponymous hero is the young prince of Tyr who, after being forced to flee his homeland, loses his ship in a storm, and wanders into a series of hallucinatory kingdoms, as he searches for wife Thaisa and daughter Marina. This French-language, contemporary-era production by Cheek by Jowl has been met with a wave of critical acclaim, not least by our own Theatre section, who gave it a four-star review. This is the perfect chance to catch one of Shakespeare’s more obscure texts, delivering in a bold, inventive new way.
