Pericles, Prince of Tyre

A sweet love affair, a burial at sea, a daughter lost and found (after being thrown into a whore house), with each act in a different country, this tumultuous adventure story is worth the experience. “Feast here awhile, until our stars that frown lend us a smile."

For a detailed synopsis and a bit of info about the theoretical co-author, see Wikipedia.

For those of you who provide parts a scene at a time, this Character Chart shows all the characters' lines in each scene: Pericles

If your group reads the plays straight through in one sitting and you want to divide up the parts, we have a number of “cast” lists already divided up for you. These are text files that you can edit to suit your readers. We always recommend in a straight-through read that each participant take a moment beforehand to mark their parts—then everything proceeds so smoothly.       Coming soon!
