Shakespeare’s thrilling Mediterranean adventure comes to life aboard the Rose Dorothea, a 66-foot fishing schooner, staged by the creators of last year’s hit, The Hairy Ape.
In a legendary and impure world, the big-hearted hero Pericles is washed clean, and the innocent heroine Marina is beset by horrors. Chris Anthony – who played Yank in “The Hairy Ape” – will play Gower the narrator, as well as a pirate who rescues Marina from the brink of death, only to sell her to a bordello (spoiler alert: there’s a happy ending).
Brenna Geffers’ company, DieCast, performs in non-theater spaces, and in Provincetown they will stage Pericles on the deck of the Rose Dorothea inside the Provincetown Library.
