Pericles

William Shakespeare

Pericles is generally considered a collaboration between William Shakespeare and George Wilkins, which perhaps explains why it was not included in the first published collection of Shakespeare’s plays in 1623.

 

After solving a riddle in Antioch, Pericles exposes a secret that puts his life in grave peril and is forced to flee across the sea, beginning an adventure that spans decades. Storms, shipwrecks, love and grief abound in this odyssey tale of a family lost and found.
