The Shakespeare at The George 2017 summer production will be Pericles: Prince of Tyre – directed by Richard Brown.
The production will be performed from Tuesday 27th June to Saturday 8th July in the courtyard of The George Hotel, Huntingdon.
PERICLES is a late play, probably written in 1608 and preceding Cymbeline and The Winter’s Tale. In Shakespeare’s time it was one of the most frequently performed of his plays but probably the complexity of locations in the story made it less suitable to the rather formal proscenium arch style of theatre. It is now becoming more popular once again with several recent notable productions. It is also acknowledged as a collaboration between Shakespeare and a low-life playwright George Wilkins.
