Pericles, Prince of Tyre is a collaboration between William Shakespeare and George Wilkins about a man and his odyssey to be united with his family. We have been chosen to participate in Blunt Objects Theatre's production where each of the five acts of the play have been assigned to five different theater companies. We've been lucky enough to be tasked with the first act and the honor of setting the stage for the rest of the evening.
Our approach will incorporate using masks. Follow the mask pages of this blog for more information on the process and philosophy of acting in mask.
You can read the full text of Pericles here and a poem by TS Eliot in the voice of Pericle's daughter, Marina.
